Chances of Safe Return of Ali Sadpara and 2 other Mountaineers Grim

Chances of Ali Sadpara and 2 other mountaineers’ safe return have become grim after three days of missing on the K2 summit.

Sajid Ali Sadpara, son of Pakistan’s renowned mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara, expressed his fears on Sunday night.

As the effort of two days of the search operation for the missing mountaineers remained fruitless, talking to media Sajjad said, “There is no hope to live [under such harsh conditions] for three straight days.”

“I think an operation could be conducted to search the bodies but their chances of survival after spending 2-3 days in winter at 8,000 [metre altitude] are next to zero,” said Sajid

Ali Sadpara was also part of the expedition but had to abandon it due to issues with the equipment.

He said the three climbers probably met an accident while on their way back after summiting the K2.

According to him, the trio had already climbed 8,200m when he broke away from them.

“When I returned from Bottleneck at 8,200 meters, they were climbing up the Bottleneck at 11 AM [on Friday]. I’m sure they made the K2 summit and on their way back they may have had an accident, that’s why they are missing,” he added.

 

A day earlier, the rescue operation to locate three missing climbers, was temporarily suspended after it failed to locate the mountaineers for the second day.

Sadpara, John Snorri from Iceland, and Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile went missing while attempting to summit the world’s second-highest mountain, K2.
