Winter climbing on the 8,611-meter-high K2 has been a story of failure so far.
During the winter expedition of 2020-21, K2 took life of a Spanish climber Mr Sergio Minote Moreno. K2 is known to be the most difficult and dangerous to climb mountains in the world, K2 usually took life of 1 out of every 4 summit. This dead news of Sergio Minote comes at the same day, when the world was celebrating the success of Sherpas summit.
