Polish man becomes first person to ski down from K2 summit

Polish ski mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel became the first man to ski down from the summit of K2 the world’s second highest mountain and the most difficult one to climb. He was able to link snowy sections throughout his entire descent. From the summit, he descended along the shoulder towards the Cesen Route, passing below huge seracs, then via the extremely difficult Messner traverse, and via the arête on the Kukuczka-Piotrowski route before crossing snow fields full of crevasses.

Bargiel also became the 13th Pole to reach the top of the world’s second-highest mountain. He managed to do that during his second K2 expedition after aborting 2017’s attempt due to high temperatures and dangerous conditions.
