According to details, bad weather and severe Rock falls causing injuries to his team mates, forced them to abandon their mission.
Mike Horn said, ” K2 was vengeful this year, rarely provides opportunities. This year was simply terrible , too many rock falls, avalanches and as a result, climbers were injured. It was not just bad weather and the difficult climbing conditions, eight avalanches came down on the slopes of K2, four really big ones in one day,”
According to Mike, he had never heard of so many avalanches in one day in his entire life.
