Broad Peak – summit attempt

09.07.2010 – What disappointment for Mike and Kobi when they had to abandon their second attempt to reach the summit of Broad Peak.

"We had to turn back after reaching 7'900m of altitude. Once again the deep snow made it impossible for us to advance. What a struggle it was! We are just two people which makes it very tough. If we were a bigger team we would have more people available to share the hard work of opening the path through the snow.

We are both very disappointment but the mountain just wasn't ready. We certainly don't want to give up yet. We hope the weather will give us another chance and the next time the mountain will be ready for us!! After 32 hours non-stop walking we are ready for a much needed rest. Will send you the photos soon!"
