(Newsdesk) K2 south side recent summit attempt barely over; word just arrived from Kazakhstan that a summit push seems to be in its final stages on K2 north side. Texting from a tent at an altitude of 7800meters, some 200 meters below camp 4 on their difficult route, Maxut told www.kazpatriot.kz that heavy snow fall prevented the planned 8 am departure. If weather clears by 1 pm, the climbers plan to continue up and set camp 4. Following weather forecasts, the Kazakhs initially hoped to summit before August 9 but it seems they now got one more day from the expedition mets.
