The East Face of K7 was a well known and sought after objective and had been tried previously by several teams including a 2011 attempt by Dempster, Kennedy and Novak.
The peak, which is close to the Charakusa valley, has been climbed twice before by different faces. The first ascent was by a Japanese team in 1984.
The team of Dempster, Kennedy and Novak left basecamp on the 16th of July, climbed their new route with several open bivouacs, and made it back to basecamp on the 20th of July.
