Noel Hanna has a mountain to climb. And not just any mountain - K2 in Pakistan is the world's second highest.

The Northern Ireland man, who turned 54 on Monday, has been here before, having conquered the inhospitable 8,611m peak in 2018.

But this is different, and if the Dromara native manages it, he will become one of the precious few who can say they have completed a winter ascent of the summit.
