The news is taken with wide coverage by all Austrian press.

According to his original report, on Aug. 12th  he summited K2 alone and without aid of supplemental oxygen in a single summit push, which lasted a total of 70 hours.

His expedition mates and others alpinists  present at BC  had raised several doubts about Stangl’s ascent which –  hypothetically  – was the only successful ascent of K2 in 2010).
