Dávid Klein and Szilárd Suhajda abandon climb to top of Mount Everest

Dávid Klein and Szilárd Suhajda have abandoned their climb to the top of Mount Everest due to dangerous weather conditions.

The Hungarian Everest Expedition was aiming to place the first Hungarians at the summit of the world's highest peak, but it unfortunately wasn't to be this time.

Suhajda turned back on Wednesday after falling ill. Klein vowed to carry on and continued alone before aborting the climb due to bad weather over the weekend.

Klein has previously climbed the Himalayan mountain but has yet to reach the top. He reached 8,600 meters in 2007, and 8,700 meters in 2014. The team were aiming to hit the 8,848-meter summit this time, but Klein only reached 8,115 meters.
