  K2 2004: Sad news again from K2 and more bad reporting


Latest Update is here.

 

Update 8/4/2003: We understand several web sites have reported that the famous Russian climber Sergey Bogomolov is missing on K2. This is totally FALSE. Sergey Bogomolov was not part of any K2 expedition in 2004. We do NOT believe he even visited Pakistan this year. This reminds us of last year when Kari Kobler was reported feared DEAD on K2 by various web sites. Kari Kobler, was in fact not hurt, not even injured. The report was totally FALSE. If you want to know what Kari thinks of those reports e-mail him. His English is not good, but you will be able to make out his opinion.

 

We will let you judge what this says about those who report deaths without confirmation, based on??? Sadly, this occurs regularly.

 

Our Earlier report

 

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. You might have noticed our somewhat vague update. Most of the press or web sites, don't wait until the families are notified, they just report stuff, as you are aware of, if you live in America.

 

A few hours ago, it appears others, found part of this information and reported it on at least 2 other web sites. We are now getting questions, so we have decided to release the information we know.

 

Please pray for the families and the climbers...

 

Interesting, Vladimir Suviga another Russian climber would have reached the summit of K2 after Alexander went missing....

 

Details and facts are very thin right now....

 

Please pray for the families and the climbers...
