The summer 2022 season was fantastic for female climbers. Records were set individually plus the total number who made it to the top, 26. Courtesy of Karrar Haidri, Secretary Alpine Club of Pakistan, for this year’s list
K2 used to be known as having a sort of curse for women climbers. Prior to 2014, of the nine women who have summited, five have died – 3 descending from K2’s summit and 2 on other 8,000m peaks. Congratulations to all.
