K2 region is proving it's reputation this season...

Most recent accident...Marty Schmidt and son Denali disappeared from Camp 3.

I guess to be fair, 10 of those deaths weren't so much the mountain, but still a very harsh month in the region.

That's really really sad. I'm so sorry for the family. I remember meeting Marty in Kathmandu back in 2010.
