Was just there on the 15th. Never looked into the north face, but there were plenty of spots where just one slip or a hand/foot hold breaking free would be very costly, even on the standard route, hence eased tension once back around K2 en route to the Daly saddle.

Hoping Ryan's friends and family have many rich memories to carry with into the future. Scandat in pace.
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:
