We forgot to post about this last month. Four climbers died last month in the second largest single day accident on K2. The four, Yuri Uteshev, Alexander Foigt, Piotr Kuznetsov and Arcady Kuvakin were part of a Russian led team hit by an avalanche on August 13th:
The team was in Camp 4 intending to descend. But the weather suddenly improved the next day, and with the top being so close, they made a summit push on August 13 divided in three teams. The avalanche caught the first and the second group, leaving out the last party of Serguey, Irish climber Banjo and Polish climber Jacek.
