Japanese climbers are heading up for what appears to be their summit attempt
and as possible rescuers for two climbers who disappeared last week on K2. The
missing climbers have not been officially identified and their nationalities
have not been released by authorities, were attempting K2 last week. For some
reason, instead of descending with the rest of the climbers, they stayed up
high when the bad weather moved in as
The climbers "lost contact with their base camp" on July 28, according to Saeed Ahmad Khan.
Almost all of the climbers who descended last week, left K2, as that is what
climbers do after their summits. The weather was too bad to go back up even if
anyone would have wanted too. Some who made it down, only made it down with
help. The weather has been been horrible since then
to attempt to rescue the climbers, again as
predicted. However, it is unclear what weather reports these missing
climbers were receiving.
We understand several web sites have reported that the famous
Russian climber Sergey Bogomolov is missing on K2. This is totally FALSE.
On Thursday of last week, we were notified that a Russian climber, Alexander, was lost on K2.
We contacted his team, which asked that we not report the information for
awhile. They were trying to send help, and had to notify the families. Another
climber along with the Iranian climber Davoud Khadem Asl were at camp 4
in very bad conditions on Friday. The
expedition told us that details were very thin.
Please pray for the
families and the climbers...
