K2 Summit Ski DescentMultiple sources now report that Polish ski mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel has made the first ski descent from the summit of K2 (8611m). It is reported, but not yet confirmed that he began his descent via the normal route, then followed what's known as the Basque route to Camp 3. From there, Bargiel is then believed to have traversed to the right via Messner’s variant and skied the Polish route down the lower South Face.
Details are still relatively scarce, but it would seem that a major steep skiing milestone has been achieved. Congratulations to Bargiel his team.
