In the winter expedition of 2019/2020, John Snorri Sigurjóhnson took part in the winter expedition at K2 under the leadership of Sherpa Mingma G. I don’t know what happened then, there was a bit of criticism given by John Snorri regarding the course of the expedition which he didn’t think was really serious. want to reach the top of K2.

In 2020/2021, John Snorri created his own team to reach the top of K2. He also recruited Pakistan’s greatest mountaineer, Muhammad Ali Sadpara and his son; Sajid Ali Sadpara, to join the expedition. Both Sajid and his father are veteran K2 summiters and are among the strongest climbers from Pakistan.

After the first failed attempt, John Snorri Sigurjóhnson, Muhammad Ali Sadpara, Sajid Ali Sadpara and Juan Pablo Mohr who joined, decided to make a summit together. In the Bottleneck area, Sajid was forced to retreat and descend to Camp III, while the other 3 climbers continued to climb.

The three then disappeared and never came back again.

Earlier in 2017, John Snorri Sigurjóhnson had already reached the top of K2 and became the first Icelander to do so. Besides K2, other eight thousand meter mountains that have been topped by John Snorri are Broad Peak, Lhotse, and also Manaslu.
