Polish mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel, 30, became the first person to successfully descend from K2 Mountain, the world’s second highest summit in July.
The K2, located on the Pakistan-China border in Karakuri, is considered one of the toughest mountains to climb. It is also the second highest summit of the world after Everest. Polish Andrzej Bargiel, 30, successfully climaxed last year but could not land on the ski slopes due to bad weather conditions. Trying again in July, Bargiel successfully landed this time, and Tarihe was named as the first person to descend from the world’s second highest peak.
At 30, Bargiel spent a full month in the mountain with a team of Polish and Nepalese expert climbers to achieve success. Plans were made to successfully bring down the Polish mountaineer, along with his two sisters. At 4 o’clock in the morning, Bargiel climbed alone on his skis until the summit of the camel’s mountains on the high ridge of K2. The summit arrived at 11:30 and some mountain climbers were told not to take the oxygen they had used to breathe at high altitudes.
After reaching the summit, Bargiel began his long descent, which lasted for a total of 8 hours. It was about 8,000 meters above sea level, but had to wait an hour for bad weather. Bargiel reached the main camp at 7:30 pm and successfully landed 3,600 meters. Despite the death of the last two men attempting to descend from K2 Mountain, the Polish climber showed the courage to try it and succeeded.
“I am very happy that I managed to get off the K2 peak and return safely back to the Bargiel sponsor Redbull,” I started climbing to K2 on Sunday at 4 o’clock in the morning, but the weather was fine, but some problems arose, It was very cloudy and I had to wait for it to be cleaned at some point “.
People have tried to get out of K2 before, but all of these attempts ended with tragedy. Fredrik Ericsson, the last person before Bargiel who was trying to ski down to the top, lost his life in 2010. Michele Fait, a 44-year-old Italian climber a year earlier, fell in a skiing attempt and unfortunately could not be saved. Bargiel’s solo peak and epic landing were filmed by his younger brother who sent a drone from the main camp of the mountain. The drone also served as a rescue device. Thanks to the drone, the young Bargiel also identified a Scottish mountaineer who was considered dead and guided the climber.
