Given the credentials of the then Russian expedition, many still hold the view that if the Russian Giants could not tame the mighty k-2 no one on earth can.
“It was my desire and my idea for K-2 in winter”, Urubko said while talking to the press. “I shared that with Alex and Adam, they felt the vibe and put the same energy as I did…. Now, this is a big duty for each of us. I am the leader of the expedition indeed”.
Some 600lbs of gear is currently being transported to the K-2 Base Camp on the Chinese Side ahead of the expedition which will kick off in the mid of December.
