Chances of Ali Sadpara’s return are slim, says son
Son of famous mountaineer, Sajid Sadpara has said that chances of return of his father Ali Sadpara, who went missing while trying to scale the second-highest mountain of the world during winter season, were almost next to none.
In a video statement, he said that it was really tough to spend three days in extremely harsh cold weather at the height of 8,000 feet, therefore he had no hope left regarding his father’s being alive.
Sajid said that he believed that his father had summited K2, however he must have faced trouble while returning back. He said an operation could be launched to recover the dead body.
After reaching Skardu base camp, Sajid Sadpara said, “I am grateful for the efforts of the Pakistan Army and rescue agencies.” He returned to C3 on Friday evening because his oxygen regulator was not working, but other climbers continued to climb.
Rescue operation is underway to find Pakistani climber Ali Sadapara and two other foreign climbers of the team.
Earlier in January, 10 Nepalese climbers made their first K2 summit in the winter. During the adventure of the world’s second highest peak, K2, a rope broke on the way back from Camp 3, in which a foreign climber fell into an avalanche and disappeared.
