Topic - Everest not the tallest

AlexBush - on 13 Mar 2013
Just heard from a friend that for a few weeks a year, when the snow builds up on K2 it actually rises higher than Everest!

Needless to say I quickly got Google on the case and stumbled across this:

Not sure I will take it as gospel but an interesting concept anyway.

I mean could claim to have climbed the highest peak in the world after having climbed K2 in winter conditions?

I have to add that it is not on my tick list of mountains for the year!
