A group of mountaineers aims to continue the search for John Snorri Sigurjónsson and his two friends in June.
This is stated on the website of the British Broadcasting Corporation. Noel Hanna says she intends to take part in an expedition with the son of John Snorri’s friends.
The expedition will take place sometime between mid-June and the end of July.
With John Snorri on the trip were Ali Sadpara from Pakistan and Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile.
Ali’s son, Sajid Sadpara, set off with his father and John Snorra but had to leave when it came to the so-called bottleneck on K2.
In a post on Twitter, Sajid says that the goal is to look for the trio and get them down from the mountain. He also plans to clear part of the mountain and restore old ropes / debris.
Poor gear is the problem
Sajid also says that many deaths on the mountain come from the bad conditions of the ropes that climbers use when climbing the mountain.
He also said that the cleaning of the mountain would take place from the base camp to the fourth camp, which is about 8000 meters above sea level, only 611 meters from the summit.
According to Noel Hanna in a BBC report, the mountaineering association in Pakistan is also involved in the search expedition.
Hopefully conditions will be good in May so the expedition can continue.
