Polish climbers already in the database under k2 (5 300 m). All healthy. “home” for the next month. And in pl we still have our up for 35 days:

K2 – the dream of climbers from around the world, the most difficult opponent, with which it came to measure climbers high altitude in winter conditions, and – so far – only a eight-thousander unassailable winter …

The word has been said, so once again, tirelessly – and no less ambition than a year ago – we move to the summer and then winter conquest of K2, hoping for your great support!

I constantly guided us to this same simple idea:
# K2dlaPolaków – reach the clouds, reaching peaks reach the sky!

Jerzy Natkański, head of the summer expedition to K2


Support team of Polish climbers in the expedition to K2 and leave their mark on the top of dreams!

Before a group of tireless Polish climbers take winter – the most difficult challenges of high altitude – the summer of 2017 years will try to tame K2, taking a trial of strength against the historical making !

The aim of the summer expedition is entering the second summit of the world with a height of 8611 m above sea level and at the same time as the best preparation – including in terms of choice of the road – a winter storm on K2 .

Why is it so important for us?

Mountain top, as used to say about her, constantly (for now! :)) it is our national challenge. Not only in winter, when the conditions for climbing are horrendously difficult, but also in the summer! Then the weather is far more gracious to us, but raise funds for the expedition far harder. Therefore, once again we ask you to #HELP! I firmly believe that – just like a year ago – with your support we will be able to organize a summer expedition to the summit of the peak of dreams!

Why we fight for K2 for the Poles?

Watch the video and find out what about getting the K2 Poles say #Wielicki Krzysztof, Leszek Jerzy #Cichy and # Natkański

– After our success in the Himalayas Winter, Zawada thought of the Karakoram and of course – as Zawada – thought of the highest peak , ie K2 . It is the end of 1987. We set off on a journey (…) that lasted nearly four months. (…) We incurred a defeat, but gained new experiences. We knew that going back ! – says Krzyszt of Wielicki , the first conqueror of Everest in winter.
