  • Pakistan’s Ali Sadpara efficiently tops the world’s second highest mountain, the 8,611-metre-tall K2
  • Sadpara and Icelandic mountaineer John Snorri had introduced participation within the K2 Winter Expedition 2021; their bid in January failing because of climate situations

Pakistani mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara has efficiently climbed the 8,611-metre K2 — the world’s second highest mountain — in the course of the K2 Winter Expedition 2021, it emerged Friday, a month after their first try failed.

Sadpara and his group had departed for his or her journey a day after his birthday within the wee hours of Wednesday, asking followers and admirers to “keep us in your prayers”. He has since been offering updates on his Twitter account every time the WiFi alerts work.

Final night time, his group left for the ultimate summit bid, with the mountaineer saying it may “take up to 14 hours to reach the top”.

Earlier at this time, it was reported {that a} overseas mountaineer was presumed killed in an avalanche as Pakistani and overseas climbers aimed for the K2 summit at this time. Sources had mentioned he disappeared in a snowslide after the group’s rope broke after they had been on their approach again from camp three.

Icelandic mountaineer John Snorri and Sadpara had introduced the K2 climb earlier.

The Pakistani climber offered updates intermittently all through the day, urging media to be extra accountable and saying within the night {that a} group member, Sajid, “has reached C3” after being unable to “reach the summit because of his oxygen regulator malfunctioning”.

“I just got in contact with Sajid at C3. He went out to check if there is any trace of them. He hasn’t saw any lights or any movement,” Sadpara wrote Friday night time.

“He has food, sleeping bag and he is holding tight. We’ll publish the news as soon as he informs us.”
