They couldn't climb G3 without descending to the BC but they've achieved the first main 8000ers traverse since Messenr and Kammerlander in 1984, when they climbed the same mountains. What happened in the Moro and Urubko Everest-Lhotse traverse in 2000 :?: Why they say it's false :?:

¿No hay travesía para "los Pedros"? Another controversial climb, it's not sure that they didn't descend to the BC between both ascents as his mate Piotr Pustelnik has said

Climbers are trapped high on k2 above the Bottleneck. A large chunk of ice broke away from the traverse and Bottleneck taking some fixed lines with it. :(
