The South Tyrolean Tamara Lunger has communicated that, despite the circumstances, she wants to stick to her goal of climbing K2 in winter.
Last week, the events at the second highest peak in the world rolled over. A team of 10 Nepalese wrote mountaineering history with the first winter ascent of K2. On the same day, the Catalan alpinist Sergi Mingote fell and died of his injuries.
The 34-year-old South Tyrolean witnessed the accident.
Together with these words, Tamara Lunger published a video in which she dances and sings with Sergi Mingote.
Recovers something positive from negative events
Due to the events, Alex Gavan left the base camp. Tamara, on the other hand, has decided to stay at K2 and to stick to her goal of doing K2 in winter.
Tamara Lunger has announced that she will team up with Chilean Juan Pablo Mohr, with whom she has already acclimatized, for the summit attempt.
