Looks like Jost’s Everest is over and Txikon’s team had to fight just to get to C2. Chomolungma is playing tough this winter. More tomorrow.

One is going for the summit and one is doing laps on Everest. We will know at the end of this week if Everest will see a winter summit this season.

Both winter Everest teams are starting their final pushes. The wildcard, will be weather and this week's forecast has a few short windows, but nothing ideal, especially in winter.

The remaining two winter 8000ers teams are struggling. Both suggest only one more attempt. Danger signs for the Everest Spring season. Denis Urbuko ended his 8000er career.

Broad Peak weather forecast changed so Urbuko will leave for the summit Sunday, February 16 aiming to top out on the 17th. He's alone with no comms so we won't have any updates

The only team attempting the last 8000er without a winter summit, K2, abandoned their effort on Feb 5. Now we get the whole story on what happened directly from Mingma Gyalje Sherpa.
