The rescue operation to find three climbers, including Pakistan’s Muhammad Ali Sadpara, who went missing while trying to attempt to summit the world’s second-highest mountain, K2, continued for the second day on Sunday.
Sadpara, John Snorri from Iceland and MP Mohr from Chile have not been communicated since the three began their push for the K2 summit from camp 3 at midnight between Thursday and Friday, according to their team.
Several experts, including four local high experience climbers, Fazal Ali and Jalal from Shimshal, Imtiaz Hussain and Akbar Ali from Skardu, Chhang Dawa Sherpa and other members of the SST winter team, are part of the rescue mission.
An official of the team told Dawn that rescue teams were searching for the missing climbers by following the route they had taken towards the summit through helicopters. The rescue operation will continue until all three are located, he added.
