Uda艂o mi si臋 po偶egna膰. To by艂o trudne. Nie czu艂am nawet si艂y, by stawi膰 czo艂a w臋dr贸wce, a zamiast tego musz臋 powiedzie膰, 偶e dobrze mi ona robi. Pi臋kno przyrody, g贸ry, p艂atki 艣niegu i s艂o艅ce przywracaj膮 mi kontakt i wi臋藕 z tym 艣wiatem, a tak偶e z samym sob膮.

(ORGINAL TXT) I was able to say goodbye. It's been difficult. I didn't even feel the strength to face the trek and instead I have to say that it's doing good to me. The beauty of nature, the mountains, the snowflakes and the sun give me back the contact and the connection with this world and also with myself. The people who are with me in these days are helping me to have some good moments too! Thank you Seven Summit Team & staff, cooks and helpers and porters. I am so grateful to be able to go through this with you. .

DALSZE WSPOMNIENIA – Wracaj膮c do domu wci膮偶 wracam my艣lami do moich ostatnich dni na K2. Wspomnienia o JP, Ali i Johnie nie chc膮 ust膮pi膰. Podziel臋 si臋 kilkoma kr贸tkimi wspomnieniami o moich przyjacio艂ach, kt贸rzy odeszli.
4 lutego wspina艂em si臋 sam przez ca艂y dzie艅 i by艂em pierwsz膮 osob膮, kt贸ra dotar艂a do miejsca, gdzie ko艅czy艂y si臋 sta艂e liny tu偶 przed obozem 3 oko艂o 14:00. Oko艂o godziny p贸藕niej JP by艂 nast臋pny. JP i ja stali艣my si臋 bardzo bliskimi przyjaci贸艂mi, poniewa偶 dzielili艣my ma艂y namiot jadalny w Basecamp. By艂em zachwycony, 偶e go widz臋 po tym, jak zosta艂em sam. 呕aden z nas nie wiedzia艂 dok艂adnie, gdzie znajduje si臋 High Camp 3, ale w typowym alpejskim stylu JP zasugerowa艂, aby艣my kontynuowali bez sta艂ych lin, poniewa偶 on mia艂 przy sobie lin臋 i 7 艣rub lodowych. Powiedzia艂 mi: “Colin, idziemy!”. Wczoraj JP mia艂 urodziny. Rozmawiali艣my o 艣wi臋towaniu po zdobyciu szczytu z wielkim tortem. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, m贸j drogi przyjacielu. Mam nadziej臋, 偶e u艣miechasz si臋 do mnie z g贸ry.
Ali Sadpara jest Michaelem Jordanem wspinaczki w Pakistanie. Nawet z jego niesamowitym do艣wiadczeniem i wyr贸偶nieniami, Ali by艂 jednym z najskromniejszych, najmilszych, najlepiej ta艅cz膮cych i najbardziej zabawnych ludzi, jakich kiedykolwiek spotka艂em. Po艂膮czyli艣my si臋 w Basecamp. W nocy 4 lutego, gdy dotar艂em do High Camp 3 i rozbi艂em sw贸j namiot, Ali przyby艂 nieco p贸藕niej. Nie mia艂 ze sob膮 namiotu, bo jego syn, Sajid, ni贸s艂 ich namiot i by艂 za nim. Zaprosi艂em go wi臋c do mojego namiotu, by nie zmarz艂. Mieli艣my problem z zapaleniem kuchenki, a poniewa偶 by艂 on weteranem zimowych wypraw na 8000 m, pokaza艂 mi sprytn膮 sztuczk臋 z zapa艂kami ogrzewaj膮cymi zewn臋trzn膮 stron臋 kanistra z gazem, by zapali膰 zamarzni臋t膮 kuchenk臋. Wszyscy razem rozbici w moim namiocie, humor i pozytywna energia u Ali’ego nigdy nie opad艂y. Nigdy nie zapomn臋 jego u艣miechu i mi艂ych oczu.
Dzie艅 wcze艣niej, 3 lutego,
John Snorri i ja wyruszyli艣my z Basecamp w kierunku szczytu w ci膮gu kilku minut od siebie, oko艂o 4 rano. W zwi膮zku z tym nasze drogi krzy偶owa艂y si臋 wiele razy na trasie, ale najbardziej pami臋tna by艂a fili偶anka herbaty, kt贸r膮 dzielili艣my, odpoczywaj膮c razem na p贸艂ce w pobli偶u Obozu 1, podziwiaj膮c pi臋kno otoczenia i ekscytacj臋, kt贸r膮 obaj czuli艣my. Te wspomnienia sprawiaj膮, 偶e si臋 u艣miecham, my艣l膮c o dobru, kt贸re by艂o obecne na K2, a nie tylko o tragedii. 呕egnajcie moi przyjaciele.

(ORGINAL TXT) FOND MEMORIES - As I make my way back home I keep going back through my final days on K2. Memories of JP, Ali, and John won鈥檛 quit. I鈥檒l share a few brief ones in memory of my friends who have passed away.

On Feb 4th I鈥檇 been climbing alone all day and was the first person to arrive to where the fixed ropes ended just before Camp 3 around 2pm. About an hour later, JP was the next to arrive. JP and I had become very close friends as we shared a small dining tent in Basecamp. I was thrilled to see him after having been alone. Neither us of knew exactly where High Camp 3 was located, but in typical JP alpine style he suggested we continue on without fixed ropes as he was carrying a rope and 7 ice screws. He told me, 鈥淐olin, let鈥檚 go!鈥 Yesterday was JP鈥檚 birthday. We had talked about celebrating after the summit with a big cake. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my dear friend. I hope you are smiling down from above.

Ali Sadpara is the Michael Jordan of climbing in Pakistan. Even with his incredible experience and accolades, Ali was one of the humblest, kindest, best dancing, most hilarious people I鈥檇 ever met. We bonded in Basecamp. On the night of Feb. 4th after I had reached High Camp 3 and set up my tent, Ali arrived a bit later. He had no tent with him, as his son, Sajid, was carrying their tent and was behind him. So I invited Ali into my tent out of the cold. We were having trouble lighting our stove and since he was a veteran of 8000m winter expeditions he showed me a crafty trick with matches heating the outside of the gas canister to light the frozen stove. All smashed in my tent together, Ali鈥檚 humor and positivity never subsided. I鈥檒l never forget his smile and kind eyes.

The day prior, on Feb 3rd, John Snorri and I left from Basecamp for the summit push within a few minutes of each other around 4am. As such, our paths crossed many times on the route, but most memorably was a cup of tea we shared, resting on a ledge together near Camp 1, marveling at the beauty of our surroundings and the excitement we both felt lay ahead.These memories make me smile, thinking fondly on the good that was present on K2, not just the tragedy. RIP my friends. .

Right now I鈥檓 looking at this experience as life changing. The carnage on this peak on this trip was downright cruel. This mountain taught everyone a lesson - the most valuable was that above all else it should be respected with caution. Life should be appreciated because it can be taken away in an instant. Looking forward to going home to warmer temperatures and some powder to ski.馃檹馃徎

Pr贸by poszukiwania i ratowania cz艂onk贸w naszego zespo艂u Johna Snorri, Ali Sadpara i wspinacza Juana Pablo Mohr trwaj膮 ju偶 od 48 godzin.
Niesamowicie utalentowani pakista艅scy piloci wojskowi kr膮偶yli nad K2 wysoko nad obozem, szukaj膮c naszych przyjaci贸艂.
Wczoraj wyruszy艂em na jedn膮 z misji SAR wraz z pilotami, kt贸rzy zidentyfikowali kilka potencjalnych trop贸w, kt贸re zgadza艂y si臋 z 偶贸艂tymi i czerwonymi kombinezonami puchowymi, kt贸re mieli na sobie John i Ali.
Z daleka by艂 to solidny trop, ale niestety z teleobiektywem, z bliska, a p贸藕niej w powi臋kszeniu na laptopie okaza艂o si臋, 偶e te tropy to niestety namiot, mata i 艣piw贸r w podobnym kolorze. Te zdj臋cia b臋d膮 dalej analizowane.
W basecampie by艂 to wir emocji, oczekiwanie na cud, modlitwy, 偶e jakim艣 cudem John, Ali i JP jeszcze 偶yj膮.

(ORGINAL TXT) (ORGINAL TXT) Instagram update 22 hrs ago Where there is hope there could be life. Search and rescue attempts for our team members John Snorri, Ali Sadpara and climber Juan Pablo Mohr have been ongoing for the last 48 hours. The incredibly talented Pakistani Military pilots have been circling K2 high above basecamp searching for our friends. Yesterday, I embarked on one of the SAR missions with the pilots who identified a few potential leads that synced up with the yellow and red down suits that John and Ali were wearing. From a great distance, it proved to be a solid lead, but unfortunately with a telephoto lens, close fly by and expanded view later on a laptop showed that these leads unfortunately turned out to be a similarly colored tent, mat and sleeping bag. These photos will be further analyzed. It鈥檚 been a whirlwind of emotions at basecamp, anticipating a miracle, praying that somehow John, Ali and JP are still alive.

Aktualizacja 2:
By艂 29 grudnia wczesnym rankiem. Bardzo zimno. Obudzili艣my si臋 w Concordii i w pewnym momencie zobaczyli艣my K2. G贸ra tak dzika w艣r贸d wielu innych wok贸艂, 偶e na pierwszy rzut oka budzi respekt.

Zdj臋cie nie jest najlepsze z uwagi na warunki panuj膮ce w tym czasie, ale pokazuje jak pot臋偶ny jest to potw贸r.

Teraz mamy 9 lutego, czyli sze艣膰 tygodni p贸藕niej. Dosta艂em Lekcj臋 mojego 偶ycia i jestem gotowy do powrotu do domu.

UPDATE 2: (ORGINAL TXT) It was December 29th early morning. Really cold. We woke up at Concordia and at some point we saw IT: K2. A mountain so savage among many others around it imposes respect at first sight. . The picture is not the best due to conditions at that time but is shows how massive is this Monster. . Now it is February 9th, it is six weeks later. I got the Lesson of my life and I鈥檓 ready to go home.

Ostatnie dni na K2 by艂y niewiarygodnie trudne.
Po pierwsze, John Snorri i Ali Sadpara nie byli widziani ani s艂yszani. Ostatnio widzieli ich syn Alego, Sajid, p贸藕nym rankiem w w膮skim gardle, kiedy Sajid zawr贸ci艂 z powodu problemu z regulatorem tlenu. Jest teraz z nami bezpieczny w obozie.
PK, Fazel i ja (minus Jalal) po 2,5 tygodnia pobytu w obozie zrobili艣my w ci膮gu 3 dni przej艣cie z basecampu do obozu 3.

(ORGINAL TXT) The last number of days on K2 have been incredibly difficult. Firstly, John Snorri and Ali Sadpara have not been seen or heard from since the morning of the 5th. They were last seen by Ali鈥檚 son Sajid at the bottleneck late morning when Sajid turned around due to an oxygen regulator problem. He is now with us safe at basecamp. PK, Fazel and I (minus Jalal) made a push from basecamp to camp 3 over 3 days after being here for 2.5 weeks. We suffered, but kept pushing upwards, loaded like mules again, gathering footage, trying to catch up with John, Ali and Sajid. We intersected with them at camp 2. The plan was to follow/film them as far as we could if we were strong enough from camp 3. We eventually were below camp 3 when we learned there was a serious miscommunication about the extra oxygen we purchased, which unacclimatized was our lifeline, so we descended to Japanese camp 3 and spent the night listening to the brutal radio communications of climbers sandwiched into tents at high camp 3. We knew we were in harms way without ample oxygen so we packed it in. This update is from 48 hours ago. We are now back online and will be posting updates as they come in. We are praying for a miracle over here.

T臋skni臋 za Tob膮 JP! Dzi艣 s膮 Twoje urodziny i mieli艣my zamiar to uczci膰, ale zamiast tego jestem tu bez wyrazu, ze 艂zami w oczach i mn贸stwem pyta艅. Wiedz膮c, 偶e szanse na zobaczenie Ci臋 ponownie s膮 bliskie zeru.
Jestem wdzi臋czna, 偶e mia艂am szcz臋艣cie pozna膰 Ci臋 z Twoim u艣miechem, Twoj膮 energi膮 i ca艂膮 pasj膮 i mi艂o艣ci膮, kt贸ra w Tobie drzemie.
Tego, 偶e to trwa艂o tak kr贸tko nie spodziewa艂am si臋 i to 艂amie mi serce, tak bardzo!!!
Niech anio艂y zabior膮 Ci臋 tam, gdzie jest Ci dobrze, jeste艣 chroniony i szcz臋艣liwy.
Dzi臋kuj臋 Ci bardzo za ten intensywny czas, to by艂a ogromna pomoc mie膰 Ci臋 blisko mnie z ca艂膮 t膮 tragedi膮.
艁膮cz臋 si臋 w 偶alu z Twoj膮 rodzin膮 i przesy艂am Ci ca艂膮 si艂臋, jak膮 tylko mog臋!
Moje serce p艂acze r贸wnie偶 za Alim i Johnem, g贸ra zabra艂a mi tak wiele.
Ta wyprawa by艂a dla mnie najbrutalniejsz膮, jak膮 prze偶y艂em. Przygoda, kt贸ra zacz臋艂a si臋 jak sen, a sko艅czy艂a si臋 koszmarem, kt贸ry b臋dzie mnie 艣ciga艂 przez d艂ugi czas!

Dzi艣 wszyscy wyruszamy w drog臋 powrotn膮 do domu.

(ORGINAL TXT) (ORGINAL TXT) Miss you JP! Today is your birthday and our plan was to celebrate, but instead I'm here speechless, with tears in my eyes and a lot of questions. Knowing that the chances of seeing you again are close to 0. I'm thankful that I was lucky enough to meet you with your smile, your energy and all the passion and love inside of you. That this was of such short duration I did not expect and it breaks my heart, so much!!! May the angels take you where you are well, protected and happy. Thank you so much for this intense time, it was a huge help to have you near me with all this tragedy. I am grieving for your family as well and sending all the strength I can! My heart also cries for Al矛 e John, the mountain this time has taken so much from me, right now it seems to me also the love for what I do. This expedition for me was the most brutal I have experienced. An adventure that started as a dream and ended in a nightmare that will chase me for a long time! Looking forward now will be the thing to do! It will be difficult but I will do my best. I will start from here: I will try to turn my back on K2 to find some peace! Today we all leave for our journey back home. JP, Al矛, John, Sergi and Antanas I will carry you in my heart forever 鉂わ笍 Thanks to all of you who stand by me.

He managed to motivate so many people to change their lives and also their attitude towards nature and environment. He fulfilled his mission in this world. He showed us that a person a plant-based diet could achieve a lot as he did (10x8000 meters) We lost an unique man, who was also a big dreamer and an idealist. Rest in piece!

Firstly I would like to request all the medias in Pakistan, Iceland and Chile to keep distance from Muhammad Ali鈥檚, John鈥檚 and Pablo鈥檚 family. Please please, this is not the time to go and bother their family for the benefit of your own news agency. The president @dr.arifalvi , Tourism Minister @sayedz.bukhari all know Muhammad Ali which mean Ali is the Nation鈥檚 pride and wonderful person. Same is with John and Pablo. I am very happy to see Sajid and still praying for the miracles on K2 happen but we are now at a phase of accepting the truth considering the situation. Imagine how this young man must be feeling....... I have no words to write further in such a difficult situation.

Aktualizacja 2:

Sajid Sadpara rozmawia z mediami
Ostatni raz widzia艂em mojego ojca wspinaj膮cego si臋 na w膮skie gard艂o: Sajid Sadpara
Sajid, syn Alego Sadpary, alpinisty, kt贸ry zagin膮艂 podczas wyprawy na K2, dotar艂 z obozu bazowego K2 do Skardu. Co jeszcze widzia艂 w ci膮gu tych trzech dni:
Sajid Sadpara, syn alpinisty Ali Sadpara, kt贸ry zagin膮艂 podczas wspinaczki na drugi najwy偶szy szczyt 艣wiata K2, dotar艂 do Skardu z obozu bazowego K2 w helikopterze armii pakista艅skiej u偶ywanym do akcji ratunkowej. M贸wi si臋, 偶e ostatni raz widzia艂 swojego ojca na wysoko艣ci 8.200 metr贸w.
Rozmawiaj膮c z niekt贸rymi osobami z medi贸w, Sajid Sadpara powiedzia艂, 偶e jest przekonany, 偶e zesp贸艂 Ali Sadpara osi膮gn膮艂 szczyt K2, a podczas powrotu mog艂o doj艣膰 do incydentu z powodu z艂ej pogody i silnego wiatru. 蹟
Zapytany o akcj臋 poszukiwawcz膮, powiedzia艂: “Je艣li min膮 wi臋cej ni偶 dwa lub trzy dni, szanse na to, 偶e jakikolwiek cz艂owiek prze偶yje na wysoko艣ci ponad 8000 metr贸w przy surowo艣ci zimnej pogody, s膮 nik艂e.” Akcja ratunkowa powinna by膰 kontynuowana w celu odnalezienia cia艂.
Podzi臋kowa艂 ca艂emu narodowi za modlitw臋 za niego w tym trudnym czasie.
Po przybyciu do obozu bazowego K2, Sajid Sadpara by艂 bardzo zm臋czony i zaburzony psychicznie, wi臋c trudno by艂o mu podr贸偶owa膰 do Skardu drog膮 l膮dow膮, wi臋c zosta艂 przetransportowany drog膮 powietrzn膮 do Skardu w niedziel臋 wieczorem.
Sajid powiedzia艂, 偶e atak K2 rozpocz臋艂 si臋 5 grudnia, a on by艂 ze swoim ojcem. Opr贸cz ojca i syna w ekspedycji wszyscy byli zagranicznymi wspinaczami.
“W nocy 5 lutego rozpocz臋li ostateczny szczyt K2”, powiedzia艂, odnosz膮c si臋 do incydentu na K2. By艂o tam czterech wspinaczy, w tym on i jego ojciec, podczas gdy inne grupy nepalskich i europejskich wspinaczy schodzi艂y z obozu trzeciego.
Nale偶y zauwa偶y膰, 偶e obaj pakista艅scy wspinacze zdecydowali si臋 wej艣膰 na szczyt bez tlenu, ale zapasowe butle z tlenem by艂y trzymane razem, aby mo偶na by艂o ich u偶y膰 w razie trudno艣ci.
Sajid Sadpara powiedzia艂, 偶e kiedy wyszed艂 z obozu nr 3 i osi膮gn膮艂 wysoko艣膰 8200 metr贸w, poczu艂, 偶e jego tlen jest na wyczerpaniu, a jego m贸zg ucierpia艂 z powodu braku tlenu.
Powiedzia艂, 偶e jego ojciec powiedzia艂 mu, aby u偶ywa艂 tlenu, kt贸ry mia艂 ze sob膮 w nag艂ych wypadkach, ale kiedy mia艂 na sobie mask臋 tlenow膮, jego regulator przecieka艂, pozostawiaj膮c go bezu偶ytecznym.
Sajid powiedzia艂, 偶e zamiast ryzykowa膰 swoje 偶ycie, jego ojciec wys艂a艂 go z powrotem, aby si臋 wyleczy艂, pozostawiaj膮c swojego ojca (Ali Sadpara) i dw贸ch zagranicznych wspinaczy w obszarze w膮skiego gard艂a. Wyszed艂 i zacz膮艂 i艣膰 w kierunku obozu 3.
Nale偶y zauwa偶y膰, 偶e na wysoko艣ci 8200 metr贸w znajduje si臋 miejsce w膮skiego gard艂a, kt贸re powstaje po obozie czwartym. Jest to bardzo trudna trasa, po kt贸rej szczyt K2 znajdowa艂 si臋 w odleg艂o艣ci zaledwie 411 metr贸w.
Sajid doda艂, 偶e ostatni raz widzia艂 swojego ojca podczas wspinaczki na bottleneck. By艂a godzina dwunasta 5 lutego, a kiedy Sajid dotar艂 do obozu trzeciego poni偶ej na wysoko艣ci 7350 metr贸w, by艂a pi膮ta wieczorem.
Powiedzia艂, 偶e nie mieli 艂膮czno艣ci. Sajid doda艂, 偶e z obozu III, skontaktowa艂 si臋 z baz膮 poni偶ej i powiedzia艂, 偶e dotar艂 i powiedzia艂, 偶e zesp贸艂 Ali Sadpara r贸wnie偶 dotrze do obozu III po zdobyciu szczytu o 10 lub 11 wieczorem 5 lutego.
Sajid Sadpara powiedzia艂, 偶e zatrzyma艂 si臋 w obozie III, poniewa偶 kiedy zesp贸艂 wr贸ci ze szczytu, zrobi im herbat臋 i wod臋, wi臋c czeka艂 ca艂膮 noc w obozie III na zesp贸艂 Alego Sadpary, a tak偶e trzyma艂 w艂膮czone 艣wiat艂a, aby nie mieli trudno艣ci ze znalezieniem obozu w drodze powrotnej w nocy.
Doda艂, 偶e rano 6 lutego ponownie skontaktowa艂 si臋 z baz膮 i powiedzia艂, 偶e zesp贸艂 nie wr贸ci艂, wi臋c kaza艂 im zej艣膰, bo w wy偶szym obozie pogoda by艂a z艂a.

UPTADE 2: 07.02.2021 Sajid Sadpara 馃檹 (ORGINAL TXT) Sajjad Ali Sadpara reached back to Skardu and had talk whit media people. According to him they were climbing bottleneck around 11.00, o clock at day time on that day when he turned back and bottleneck is the most technical point most tough point to climb). I am sure they ( the three climbers ) summitted the K2 but while coming back may be they got accident at bottleneck or below says Sajid son of Ali Sadpara thx pakistanmountainnews

UPTADE 3: 07.02.2021 Sajid Sadpara 馃檹 (ORGINAL TXT) Sajid Sadpara talk with media The last time I saw my father climbing the bottleneck: Sajid Sadpara Sajid, son of Ali Sadpara, a mountaineer who went missing while heading to K2, has reached Skardu from K2 base camp. What else did he see during these three days: Sajid Sadpara, son of climber Ali Sadpara, who went missing while climbing the world's second highest peak K2, has reached Skardu from K2 base camp in a Pakistani Army helicopter used for rescue. He is said to have last seen his father at an altitude of 8,200 meters. Talking to some media persons, Sajid Sadpara said that he was convinced that Ali Sadpara's team had reached the top of K2 and on their return an incident could have been taken place due to bad weather and strong winds.

Asked about the search operation, he said, "If more than two or three days pass, the chances of any human being surviving at an altitude of more than 8,000 meters with the severity of the cold weather are slim." The rescue operation should continue for the search of the bodies. He thanked the entire nation for praying for him in this difficult time. After arriving at the K2 base camp, Sajid Sadpara was very tired and mentally disturbed, so it was difficult for him to travel to Skardu by road, so he was airlifted to Skardu on Sunday evening. Sajid said the K2 campaign had started on December 5 and he was with his father. Except fathers and son in the expedition all were foreign climbers. "On the night of February 5, they started the final summit of K2," he said, referring to the incident on K2. There were four climbers, including him and his father, while other groups of Nepali and European climbers were descending from Camp Three. It should be noted that both Pakistani climbers had decided to climb to the top without oxygen, but backup oxygen cylinders were kept together so that they could be used in case of difficulty. Sajid Sadpara said that when he went up from Camp No. 3 and reached 8200 meters, he felt that his oxygen was running low and his brain was being affected due to lack of oxygen. He said his father told him to use the oxygen he had with him for emergencies, but when he was wearing an oxygen mask, his regulator leaked, leaving him unusable. Sajid said that instead of risking his life, his father sent him back to get better, leaving his father (Ali Sadpara) and the two foreign climbers in the bottleneck area. He left and started landing towards the camp 3. It should be noted that at an altitude of 8200 meters is the location of the bottleneck, which comes after Camp Four. This is a very difficult route after which the peak of K2 was only 411 meters away. Sajid added that the last time he saw his father was climbing at bottleneck. It was twelve o'clock on February 5, and when Sajid reached Camp Three below at an altitude of 7350 meters, it was five o'clock in the evening. He said Ali Sadpara's team had no walkie-talkie so they had no communication. Sajid added that from Camp III, he contacted the base camp below and said that he had arrived and he told that Ali Sadpara team will also arrive Camp III after the summit at 10 or 11 pm on February 5. Sajid Sadpara said that he stopped at Camp III because when the team will return from Summit, he will make them tea and water, so he waited all night in Camp III for Ali Sadpara's team and also kept the lights on so that they would not have difficulty finding the camp on their way back at night. He added that on the morning of February 6, he contacted the base camp again and told them that the team had not returned, so he told them to come down because the weather was bad at higher camp.

Several climbers were ahead and behind Atanas dai and me. Colin (Black Pyramid), Elia, and PK (below Japanese C3) were ahead and behind Noel, Tomaz, Tamara, Antonios and Sherpas. On that day I remember Atanas filmed a short video and started moving down, changing his safety from one rope to another. All of sudden in blink of an eye, he fell down and disappeared. I still cannot believe that he is gone from us, we lost a great mountaineer, and it鈥檚 a huge loss in mountaineering history. Deep condolences to Sheny @sheny.b, his family, and friends.

(ORGINAL TXT) It鈥檚 been a long time here in Pakistan. My heart is heavy for the climbers we have lost and the ones we haven鈥檛 heard from. This is sadly the risk and scenarios we all sign up to accept when we are climbing a mountain like this. I don鈥檛 wish the tragedies that have unfolded here on anyone, but the reality is that this mountain has claimed so many lives over the years and the people here have chosen to be here and try to climb here. The lessons we learn along the way are clearly more important than any summit. I am grateful to have a chance to experience this place- and feel so many emotions right now. Thinking of the families of these men lost. They each had children and other people that care about them. Praying and sending love and respect to everyone impacted by these events here. I miss my friends lost and hope they are all in a safe heavenly place. #themountaindecides #k2 #k2winter #pakistan #lessons #grateful #karakoram @jp.mohr @john.snorri @muhammadalisadpara @atanasskatovathlete @sergimingote

To by艂o niepokoj膮ce kilka dni z wiadomo艣ci膮 o zaginionych wspinaczach na K2.

Pisz膮c t臋 notk臋 czuj臋 si臋 nieco przygn臋biony, poniewa偶 dzielili艣my z nimi wspania艂e historie i wspomnienia. Nie pozna艂em Johna zbyt dobrze, ale wydawa艂 si臋 by膰 艣wietnym facetem. JP jest fajny, skromny i silny we wspinaczce.
Najbli偶szy mojemu sercu jest Ali, kt贸ry zawsze by艂 dla mnie jak starszy brat. Prze偶yli艣my razem kilka g贸rskich historii. Zawsze traktowa艂 mnie jak m艂odszego brata i czasami dzieli艂 si臋 ze mn膮 swoj膮 m膮dro艣ci膮 i do艣wiadczeniem. Ceni臋 sobie wszystkie wspomnienia, kt贸re dzielili艣my.

Poszli艣my razem i razem wr贸cili艣my do domu, ale nie tak, jak sobie to wyobra偶a艂am. Ten obowi膮zek wobec ciebie jest tak trudny, moja mi艂o艣ci! Nigdy ci臋 nie zapomn臋!

The tears dry up from time to time, but not the pain in my heart! The memory of you and your smiling face are all around me! We went together and went home together, but not the way I imagined it, my dear. This duty to you is so difficult, my love! To be a document in my hands and you will be gone! Why ?! I want to be able to disappear. Away! For a very long time! Until I forget, but I know it's impossible! I will never forget you! I know that you are in a better place and I want you to know that you live and will live in my heart, as in the hearts of your relatives and family, in the heart of Vasco, in the hearts of your mother, your father, your sister. and in the hearts of many other people!

Oh, how awful, awful, awful I long for one last conversation, for another warm hug that lasts so long that my hands get petrified and I can't let you go! I remember the night I sent you鈥 your footsteps鈥 not to be鈥! I love you for who you are! I had no right to stop you! Only my selfish love wants to keep you, but you belong to your cause! He risked his life for her and I know he succeeded! There was a purpose! There was a mission! He lived his faith every day of his life! Your life was not in vain. There was so much meaning in it. Leave so much behind. You were and are a motivation for many people. I know you know, but I just wanted to tell you! As I want to tell you a million more times "I LOVE YOU"!

So much pain that does not subside! You always told me that I was very strong and sometimes recklessly brave and crazy. Yes, honey! But not as much as you! You were and are an amazing and unique person for whom words are not enough! An incorrigible dreamer and idealist. An idealist to the point of naivety! Brave, strong, loving, brave, valiant, good and brave man! Very persistent, disciplined and purposeful! I'm still amazed at your ability to cope and do so many things in a heap and always, so that your day is not in vain, you communicate with the mountains or play sports! Your soul is where it belongs鈥 .high, high, high鈥 This morning I felt such remorse that I hated myself. After two days of almost no sedative food, I realized I needed to eat something.

Sorry, my love! I ate a few slices of fruit without you, but I barely swallowed them! The last few days we have been dreaming of very simple and small things. Let's get back warm. Let's eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Let's take a hot shower. I know how much he suffered and I witnessed how difficult it was to eat during expeditions and I know how much he loved fruit. He adored them! He ate fruit every morning, but not this one. Not with me! Happiness is in the little things and I had the privilege of sharing them with you and being by your side!

Thank you, my love ! Thank you for sharing your world with me! Thanks for the horizons you showed me and revealed! Thank you for having you! Thank you for being one of the few people who believed in my madness! Extremely rare person! When I shared with you my dream of cycling around South America, you didn't laugh at me. You just said I'm crazy and we can do it after you finish your project by climbing the highest peaks on the planet! We had so many common dreams and plans! We believed that we could have our little family outside the matrix and you know that I was ready to follow you everywhere and in spite of everything! This is not Goodbye, my love! REST IN PEACE !

Z powodu problemu z regulatorem tlenu Sajid musia艂 wr贸ci膰 z Bottle Neck do C III. Sajid czeka艂 na Alego, Johna i Juana Pablo przez ponad 20 godzin z przekonaniem, 偶e uda im si臋 dotrze膰 na szczyt i zej艣膰 z powrotem do C III, przekona艂 go do zej艣cia w d贸艂 – on ju偶 opu艣ci艂 C III, by艂 zbyt d艂ugo na g贸rze, b臋dzie bardziej wyczerpany i nie b臋dzie w stanie im pom贸c, je艣li wr贸c膮.

鈭 Otrzymali艣my potwierdzon膮 wiadomo艣膰 od Armii, 偶e wys艂ali dwa helikoptery wraz z 2 pakista艅skimi alpinistami na misj臋 poszukiwawczo-ratownicz膮. Pilot zosta艂 poinstruowany, aby wzbi膰 si臋 maksymalnie w g贸r臋, poniewa偶 powy偶ej 6500m jest bardzo niska temperatura i wiatr 35+ KM. W obozie przygotowali艣my butle z tlenem, 偶ywno艣膰, maski i regulatory dla 2 pakista艅skich wspinaczy (HAP).

Sajid waited for Ali, John, and Juan Pablo for more than 20 hours with the belief, they will make it to the summit and descend back to C III, convinced him to descend down-he already left C III, he has been up too high for too long, he will be more exhausted, and not able to help them if they return. I told 2 of the Sherpas (Temba Bhote and Phurbu Kusang) of our team (SST) to stay stand by at C I to prepare food and hot water for Sajid and also incase Sajid needs help on the way back. 鈭 Received confirmed message from Army, they sent two helicopters along with 2 Pakistani Climbers, for Search and Rescue mission.

Najpierw dobre wie艣ci. Dzi艣 rano Sajid Ali Sadpara, syn Muhammada i Antonio Sykaris, grecki alpinista, kt贸ry mia艂 problemy ze zej艣ciem z powodu zamro偶enia st贸p, s膮 ju偶 w obozie Base. Urazy Antoniosa s膮 oceniane przez lekarza BC.

RESCUE OPERATION . This is the only report we are going to do until this is over. It is what you have to do in these situations, let them work, not lose hope even though we are aware that every second that passes the chances are less, and think about their families before doing or saying anything.

Good news first. This morning, Sajid Ali Sadpara, son of Muhammad, and Antonios Sykaris, the Greek mountaineer who had trouble descending due to frostbite on his feet, are already at Base Camp. Antonios's injuries are being evaluated by the BC doctor.

Also this morning, as you know, two PAF helicopters flew over the mountain at the highest altitude they could within the meteorological conditions that existed, unsuccessfully. They have retired.

At the same time, a rescue mission by land was launched in which we would like to highlight the performance of the Pakistani mountaineers Fazal and Jalal, who provided support through the company Jasmine Tours to the group of filmmaker Elia Saikaly; and Imitaz and Akbar from Sadpara village, who arrived today with the helicopters. All great climbers, who have uploaded food and helped Sajid descend safely.

We are still waiting for the evolution of events. Various media in Pakistan and Chile are stating things that are not confirmed as facts. The only direct information available on John, Ali and JP is that provided by Sajid when descending to C3. That the 3 were at 10 am PKT in the bottleneck, in good condition, and they were continuing the attack. Since then there has been no further communication with the climbers.

The only OFFICIAL sources are those of the climbers and the companies that supported them in BC, Jasmine Tours Pakistan in the case of John Snorri and Muhammad Ali Sadpara and Seven Summit Treks, through Chhang Dawa Sherpa in the case of Juan Pablo Mohr (@ jp.mohr @ los14ochomiles IT)

Thank all those who are participating in this rescue operation for their help, especially the Pakistani Armed Forces and Alex Txikon's team at Manaslu, for all the efforts made to speed up the process as much as possible.

We also thank you all for the expressions of concern and affection that you are showing, amateurs, climbers and friends, but I would ask you that until the operation is finished, with whatever result, you limit your private messages requesting information or showing support as much as possible. Despite the good intention with which they are carried out, they hinder the rescue missions, block the lines of communication and it is impossible to answer you at this time. Now we can only be patient and wait.

The OFFICIAL channels are informing, you can consult them to be up to date and will communicate the result as soon as they have some definitive and conclusive data.

Again, thank you all for your displays of affection and collaboration. . 馃摳 Antonios Sykaris in BC and Pakistani climbers

Spe艂ni艂y si臋 moje najgorsze obawy.

Atanas by艂 bardzo do艣wiadczonym wspinaczem, zdoby艂 ju偶 10 z 14 najwy偶szych szczyt贸w 艣wiata, K2 by艂oby jego jedenastym.
Tu偶 przed zrobieniem tego zdj臋cia rozmawiali艣my o rozczarowaniu zwi膮zanym z nieosi膮gni臋ciem szczytu, ale 偶aden z nas si臋 nad tym nie zastanawia艂.

Love these guys so much and the bonds that are created on an expedition like this will last a lifetime. Happy to also greet Tomas, Josette, Lhakpa Temba, Lhakpa Dendi, and soon Tamara and Noel all making it back safe! Most are now down safe. A few others are in Camp 1- and for now please continue to send all the energy and safety in the world to JP, John Snorri and Ali who we have not heard from and maybe got to the summit before sunset but we are waiting to get confirmation from Ali鈥檚 Son who is in Camp 3. John Snorri left at 11pm last night and Ali and JP sometime between 1-3am. They have all been above 7500m now for almost 24 hours and JP without Supplemental Oxygen.

Chcia艂abym bardzo wrzuci膰 pozytywn膮 informacj臋. Niestety. K2 jest bezlitosne.
Dzi艣 odszed艂 kolejny wspania艂y cz艂owiek. Atanas Skatov z Bu艂garii. Jako weganin zdoby艂 10 o艣miotysi臋cznik贸w. Spad艂 z obozu 3 do ABC. Ponad 2 km w d贸艂….
Bardzo pozytywna i u艣miechni臋ta osoba i tak go zapami臋tamy.
Dzi艣 kilkana艣cie os贸b pr贸buj膮cych wczoraj atakowa膰 szczyt schodzi艂o z C3. Niekt贸rzy doszli do Bazy, inni do ABC i C1. Cz臋艣膰 ma odmro偶enia.
Najbardziej niepokoj膮cy jest brak kontaktu z 3 osobami z ataku szczytowego od 12h. Od 22h s膮 w drodze na szczyt, by膰 mo偶e, ju偶 ze szczytu.
Wszystko trwa zdecydowanie za d艂ugo. W tak ekstremalnych warunkach poziom ryzyka na jakie si臋 zdecydowali jest najwy偶szy. Za kilka godzin w okolicy szczytu zacznie wia膰 zdecydowanie silniejszy wiatr, za kilkana艣cie godzin b臋dzie mia艂 on si艂臋 ponad 80km/h.
Warunki robi膮 si臋 bardzo niebezpiecznie.
Ci臋偶ko ju偶 jakimi艣 s艂owami opisa膰 dzisiejsze emocje.. Niczego nie pragn臋 tak, jak tego, by wszyscy bezpiecznie wr贸cili.

05.02.2021 (Magdalena Gorzkowska 馃嚨馃嚤) I would very much like to throw in a positive note. Unfortunately. K2 is merciless. Today another wonderful man passed away. Atanas Skatov from Bulgaria. He climbed 10 eight-thousanders as a vegan. He fell from Camp 3 to ABC. Over 2 km down.... A very positive and smiling person and this is how we will remember him. Today a dozen or so people who tried to attack the summit yesterday descended from C3. Some of them reached the base, others reached ABC and C1. Some of them have frostbite. The most disturbing is the lack of contact with 3 people from the summit attack since 12h. Since 22h they are on their way to the summit, perhaps, already from the summit. Everything takes far too long. In such extreme conditions the level of risk they have decided to take is the highest. In a few hours a stronger wind will start blowing near the summit, in a dozen or so hours it will have the strength of over 80km/h. Conditions are getting very dangerous. It is hard to describe in words today's emotions. I want nothing more than for everyone to come back safely.

One hour later, while descending from Camp 3, he fell to his death. My worst fears came true. I found out over the radio while I was still at High Camp 2, and it took everything I had in me to stay focused on each step to get down safely. I still can鈥檛 fully comprehend that he is gone. I keep expecting him to walk into the tent at Basecamp right now and crack a joke. His smile and humor were infectious. Atanas was a very experienced climber, having already summited 10 of the 14 tallest peaks in the world, K2 would have been his 11th. Just before we took this picture we were chatting about the disappointment of not reaching the summit, but neither of us were dwelling on that. Instead, in Atanas鈥 boundless positivity, we were relishing in our good fortune to be where we were, looking out on the spectacular view in front of us from Camp 3 on K2 in the winter...surreal. We gave each other a big hug promising to have a toast over dinner tonight when we both arrived back in Basecamp safely. I headed down and made it back to Basecamp at 5:30pm. He left not long after me. That鈥檚 the last I鈥檒l ever see of my friend. His girlfriend Sheny @sheny.b was in basecamp with us the entire expedition and their tent was right next to our dome. My heart breaks for her, his entire family, friends and loved ones. I am struggling to find the words. So I鈥檒l stop writing and sum up his essence with this second image. We鈥檝e been grateful to welcome back nearly all SST members. Most are now down safe. We await word from those that ascended toward the summit last night including JP Mohr, John Snorri, and Ali Sadpara who have not been heard from. Please send them all the positive energy and warmth you can muster for their safe return.

Atanas was climbing with his Sherpa and went a few metres ahead so the Sherpa could see it properly. While changing his safety from one rope to the other, seems some errors occurred and he fell down, we had fixed the mountain with new ropes and it鈥檚 not broken. His body got recovered by army helicopter around 5500m 3pm the same. Sona, Pechhumbe and I went to the spot and retrieved the body. The army was extremely quick and efficient. Atanas, a good friend of me, who climbed 10 x 8000m peak, was a very appreciated member by all other members of the expedition. Deep condolences for his family and friends.

Zrobi艂am co mog艂am, podj臋艂am pr贸b臋 zdobycia szczytu w dalekim od idea艂u stanie zdrowia. Poranek w dniu wyj艣cia i samopoczucie napawa艂y optymizmem. Niestety wraz z wysoko艣ci膮 by艂o tylko gorzej. Zacz臋艂am zwraca膰 wszystko, w艂膮cznie z wod膮, lekami, o jedzeniu nie wspominaj膮c. Droga do C1, kt贸ra ostatnio zaj臋艂a nam 4,5h z Bazy Wysuni臋tej, tym razem zamieni艂a si臋 w dramat. Pomijaj膮c ju偶 ogromne wycie艅czenie, moja czo艂贸wka przesta艂a dzia艂a膰. Wszystko to dzia艂o si臋 w terenie lodowym o nachyleniu co najmniej 50 stopni, nic nie widz膮c musia艂am w zupe艂nych ciemno艣ciach przepina膰 sprz臋t, nie b臋d膮c pewn膮, czy wybieram w艂a艣ciw膮 lin臋. Szuka艂am po omacku ska艂 do z艂apania i jednocze艣nie musia艂am mn贸stwo si艂y wk艂ada膰 we wbijanie rak贸w w l贸d, gdy偶 nie mog艂am odnale藕膰 stopni. W podobnych okoliczno艣ciach przebiega艂a dalsza wspinaczka, ju偶 nie tylko w terenie lodowym. Mieli艣my ogromne op贸藕nienie czasowe. Na ca艂e szcz臋艣cie w pobli偶u by艂 Oswald, kt贸ry czeka艂 na mnie i nie zostawi艂 mnie mimo tego, i偶 straci艂 czucie w stopach i d艂oniach. Wiedzia艂am, 偶e mimo wszystko musimy dotrze膰 do C1. Wiatr wia艂 coraz silniejszy, temperatury przekracza艂y -40 stopni. Na ostatnich 50m dotarli do nas Szerpowie z herbat膮 i 艣wiat艂em. Ju偶 wtedy wiedzia艂am, 偶e musz臋 oceni膰 realnie swoje si艂y i dalsze wyj艣cie w g贸r臋 jest g艂upot膮. Wczoraj rano obudzi艂am si臋 w fatalnym stanie, z ogromnym b贸lem brzucha i skurczami. Leki i 3 艂yki herbaty zwr贸ci艂am natychmiast. Wiedzia艂am, 偶e musz臋 jak najszybciej schodzi膰. Nie by艂o to proste, gdy偶 b贸l zacz膮艂 si臋 nasila膰, a wiedzia艂am, 偶e musz臋 by膰 maksymalnie skupiona na ka偶dym ruchu i przepi臋ciu liny. Pokonali艣my ca艂膮 drog臋 zjazdow膮 bezpiecznie. Nast臋pnie kilka godzin bardzo mozolnego powrotu do Bazy z ABC. M贸j stan by艂 bardzo z艂y, zadzwoni艂am do ubezpieczyciela. Uda艂o si臋 bardzo sprawnie skontaktowa膰 z Pakista艅sk膮 Armi膮, kt贸ra dysponuje 艣mig艂owcami i zorganizowa膰 helikopter, kt贸ry zabra艂 mnie z Bazy. Jestem ju偶 w Skardu, samo zmniejszenie wysoko艣ci da艂o mi ogromn膮 popraw臋 zdrowia. Po raz pierwszy od 5 dni mam apetyt i usta艂 b贸l.

I did what I could, I made an attempt to summit in far from ideal health. The morning of the day of departure and my mood were optimistic. Unfortunately, with the altitude it was only getting worse. I started to return everything, including water, medicines, not to mention food. The road to C1, which last time took us 4.5 hours from the Base Camp, this time turned into a drama. Apart from huge exhaustion, my headlamp stopped working. All this happened in ice terrain with an incline of at least 50 degrees, not being able to see anything I had to change my equipment in complete darkness, not being sure if I chose the right rope. I was looking in the dark for rocks to grab and at the same time I had to put a lot of strength into driving the crampons into the ice, because I couldn't find the steps. Further climbing took place in similar circumstances, not only on the ice. We had a huge time delay. Fortunately, Oswald was nearby, waiting for me and didn't leave me even though he had lost feeling in his feet and hands. I knew that we had to get to C1 after all. The wind was blowing stronger and stronger, the temperature was over -40 degrees. At the last 50m the Sherpas came to us with tea and light. Already then I knew that I have to assess realistically my strength and further ascent is foolish. Yesterday morning I woke up in terrible condition, with a huge pain in my stomach and cramps. I returned the medication and 3 sips of tea immediately. I knew I had to get down as soon as possible. It wasn't easy, as the pain started to get worse, and I knew I had to be as focused as possible on every move and rope crossing. We covered the entire descent safely. Then a few hours of very strenuous return to Base Camp with ABC. My condition was very bad, I called the insurance company. They managed to contact the Pakistan Army, who have helicopters, very efficiently and arranged for a helicopter to take me from Base Camp. I am already in Skardu, just the reduction in altitude has given me a huge improvement in my health. For the first time in 5 days I have an appetite and the pain has stopped. I gave it my all, there was nothing more I could do on this trip. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being with me鉂わ笍.

Pomimo decyzji o zawr贸ceniu, Jon zach臋ca艂 mnie do dalszej wspinaczki. Z Lakp膮 i Ming Temba ju偶 w obozie 2, oznacza艂o to, 偶e sp臋dzi艂em wi臋kszo艣膰 dnia wspinaj膮c si臋 samotnie.

(ORGINAL TXT) HIGH CAMP 2 (22,000ft) - We left Basecamp at 4am with the plan to go direct to High Camp 2. Almost 6000ft of gain in a single day is a big push. Unfortunately, four hours into our day, @drjonkedski made the decision that he needed to turn around and called off his summit push. Unless your mind, body, and spirit are all feeling 100%, it鈥檚 probably not a great idea to attempt a K2 winter climb. We both shed a few tears. It was an emotional moment for us both. I 100% support and respect his decision. Dr. Jon is an incredibly strong climber and one of the best human beings I know. His judgement is incredibly sound and he made the right call today even though it was a tough one. I know we will stand on the summit of many more peaks together in the future. Despite his decision to turn around, Jon encouraged me to keep climbing. With Lakpa and Ming Temba in Camp 2 already, it meant I spent most of the day climbing alone. After 9.5 hours I arrived to low Camp 2. I took a long break there before finishing the day up by climbing one of the most challenging pitches on the mountain, 鈥淗ouse Chimney鈥 (a near vertical, narrow ice wall). Lakpa, Ming Temba and I are now hunkered down at 22,000ft in our tent at High Camp 2. The plan is to climb to Camp 3 tomorrow, and then we鈥檒l launch our summit push from there, assuming the weather stays favorable. For real time updates on my whereabouts, follow my live GPS tracker

(ORGINAL TXT) K2 winter expedition update: This morning Atanas and Lakpa Dendi Sherpa left the Basecamp of K2 at 2 a.m. and they arrived directly to Camp 2 (6600 m) at 3 p.m. We hope that the weather window for 4th and 5th of February will not change and that there will be a summit push up to 2 days. This is a realy tough and difficult expedition and some of the members already given up and returned to the Basecamp. Half of the people had a stomach disease with diarrhea and vomiting and some continued. Even Atanas went up with such a health issues but with will, stubbornness and faith! Let's wish them health, luck and good weather! *Skatov Team

(ORGINAL TXT) K2 - 8.611m summit push on the 5th February , Friday morning at noon PKT. I just spoke to John Snorri, they have arrived to their camp 2, that is located under House of chimney. They where feeling good and have appetite and positive thoughts to the summit push. Tomorrow on the 4th at 08.00 PKT they will climb up the Black Pyramid to regular camp 3 and rest there over the day. When John Snorri was on his way up today, a rock dropped on his head luckily his helmet saved him. Another climber from Seven summit wasn't so lucky, a rock dropped on his shoulder, he is estimating his situation in camp 2. This is one of the dangers in the mountains, rock drooping down on high speed. Some of the climbers from Seven summit have decided to retreat from the summit push. John Snorri also noticed small frostbite on one of his finger, but he says it will be fine, he has medicine to help him control it. But Ali and his son Sajid are feeling good. There are lot of avalanches on Broad Peak today, they can hear them and see them coming down the valley.

Atak Szczytowy, plan! -1 LUTY Po d艂ugim oczekiwaniu, w ko艅cu w prognozie pojawi艂o si臋 okno pogodowe. Dzi艣 z basecampu wyruszy艂 zesp贸艂 z 8 szerpami, kt贸rzy sprawdz膮 ca艂y sprz臋t pozostawiony w wy偶szych obozach, naprawi膮 liny i do艂o偶膮 butle z tlenem. Wiele fragment贸w trasy mog艂o zosta膰 uszkodzonych z powodu trudnej pogody panuj膮cej od 2 tygodni.
Wydaje si臋, 偶e od 1 do 5 lutego wiatr i pogoda b臋d膮 sprzyja膰, mo偶e to by膰 ostatnie okno pogodowe do rozpocz臋cia lutowych opad贸w 艣niegu.
-2 lutego (lekkie opady 艣niegu, lekkie wiatry w C2)
Wspinacze wraz z Szerpami b臋d膮 wspina膰 si臋 do obozu 1 z BC.
Zesp贸艂 8 Szerp贸w planuje wspinaczk臋 do obozu 2.
-3 LUTEGO (lekkie opady 艣niegu, 艂agodne wiatry w C3)
Zesp贸艂 Szerp贸w za艂o偶y ob贸z 3, z艂o偶y butle z tlenem, sprawdzi liny i wr贸ci do obozu 2.
Wszyscy pozostali wspinacze (cz臋艣膰 z C 1 i cz臋艣膰 bezpo艣rednio z basecampu) planuj膮 wspinaczk臋 do obozu 2.
-4 LUTEGO
Ca艂y zesp贸艂 podejdzie do Obozu 3, odpocznie kilka godzin w Obozie 3 (7300m) i rozpocznie ostateczne podej艣cie na szczyt wieczorem lub w nocy (w zale偶no艣ci od warunk贸w wietrznych).
-5 lutego (temperatura: minimum -55 Celsjusza)
Plan zak艂ada wej艣cie na szczyt 5 lutego, bezpo艣rednio z C3, co jest jedynym mo偶liwym terminem. 6 lutego wiatr wzmaga si臋 do 60km/h po po艂udniu, powy偶ej 7500m, wraz z porywami 100km/h+.
Nasz plan opiera si臋 na prognozach pogody, radach ekspert贸w i ch臋ciach zespo艂u. Jednak jest to zimowa wyprawa na K2, wszystko w ka偶dej chwili mo偶e ten plan diametralnie zmieni膰. Bezpiecze艅stwo jest najwa偶niejsze.

01.02.2021 (Chhang Dawa Sherpa 馃嚦馃嚨) K2 Winter Attack! The plan!

(ORGINAL TXT) 1 Feb After a long wait, finally we see a weather Window in the forecast. Today a the team of 8 Sherpas went up from basecamp, the team will recheck all the equipment left in higher camps, repair the fixed rope and deposit oxygen bottles as well. Many parts of route might have been damaged due to the harsh weather since 2weeks. There seems to be fair wind and weather from 1st to 5th Feb, this might be the last fair weather window until the February snowfall will start.

鈥2 Feb (light Snow fall, light winds in C2) Climbers along with Sherpas will climb up to Camp 1 from BC. The Team of 8 Sherpas are planning to climb ahead to Camp 2.

鈥3 Feb (light Snow fall, mild winds in C3) Sherpa Team will set up Camp 3, deposit oxygen bottles, recheck the ropes and return back to the Camp 2. All remaining climbers (Some from C 1 and Some directly from basecamp) have plan to climb Camp 2.

鈥4 Feb Entire team will approach to Camp 3, take a rest for several hours at Camp 3 (7300m), and start their final push to the summit in evening or night (depending on wind conditions).

鈥5 Feb (temp: -55 Celsius minimum) The plan is to summit on 5th Feb, directly from C3, the only possible date. On 6th winds increase to 60 Km/h in afternoon; above 7500m, along with 100Km/h+ wind gusts.

Our plan is based on weather reports, expert鈥檚 advice and the team鈥檚 willingness. However, it鈥檚 a K2 winter expedition, anything at any moment could change this plan massively. To get down safety is the main concern. Stay Connected !

2.02- doj艣cie do C1 (6070m)
3.02- doj艣cie do C2 (6550m)
4.02- doj艣cie do C3 (7300m), odpoczynek i wyj艣cie na szczyt. Ob贸z 4 pomijamy.

And the weather window cleared up for us. Maybe not in the best moment for me, because just yesterday I spent the whole day vomiting 馃ゴ Today I feel better and I'm slowly recovering. I waited until the last moment to plan the summit attack, because the forecasts are very unstable, but now I can safely say that 4 and 5.02 are very good days for the summit, so our plan is as follows: 2.02- reach C1 (6070m) 3.02 - ascent to C2 (6550m) 4.02- reaching C3 (7300m), resting and going to the summit. Camp 4 is skipped. These are all just numbers, which may change a bit. The most important thing for me is health and safety.

I feel immensely grateful that we were able to share this special moment and reach out to the communities around the globe amidst a pandemic, relaying a strong message of solidarity and positivity. In between many warm welcoming receptions, we are thankful to the recognition from the higher authorities including the Government of Nepal and Pakistan that triggered the attention on many key subjects, where we had opportunities to voice our experiences and outlook. The project has accelerated the relationship between both countries too. We have had some really positive conversations around the accessibility of Himalayan para alpinism, projects focused on sustainability in the Himalayas, opening new peaks and routes, training opportunities for locals etc. I hope there will be some positive approaches in support for the young talents in both countries and that we are able to pave a path for our future generations..

It's been a very difficult week, but now I've managed to calm down a little in my heart, to see more clearly, to find some peace, and for all this my body thanks me too... I already told you yesterday that I decided to stay here and continue with the expedition, and today I introduce you to my new climbing partner J.P. as I call him, but you understand he is Juan Pablo - @j.p.mohr-, a strong young man from Chile, the climbing partner of @sergimingote. We decided to join forces and continue our climb in Sergi's name and spirit. Looking at the first photo here, it doesn't seem true that he is not here anymore! J.P. and me in the sun and Sergi in the shadows who I know is now our guardian angel with us during the climb! Sergi we miss you but we will take you up with us. Sincere gratitude for everything 鉂わ笍馃檹馃寛鉁

馃摗 鈻笍 馃嚨馃嚤 Na K2 porywiste wiatry, w najbli偶szych dniach czekaj膮 nas wichury w Bazie o sile 80-100km/h. Musimy to przeczeka膰. Tak, wyprawy w Himalaje to wi臋cej czekania ni偶 akcji. Ca艂膮 akcj臋 przedszczytow膮 mamy ju偶 za sob膮. Teraz czekamy tylko i wy艂膮cznie na okno pogodowe, czyli co najmniej 3 dni z rz臋du, kiedy si艂a wiatru na szczycie b臋dzie niska. Max 25km/h. Tutaj tylko i wy艂膮cznie pogoda determinuje moje decyzje. 呕adne inne negatywne i pozytywne wydarzenia nie maj膮 wp艂ywu na moj膮 motywacj臋 i determinacj臋. Wiem po co tu jestem i p贸ki co ca艂a moja akcja g贸rska przebieg艂a zgodnie z planem i w zdrowiu. Jest to moja czwarta wyprawa na 8k i zdecydowanie czuje si臋 najlepiej z wszystkich poprzednich. Warunki zimowe mi a偶 tak nie przeszkadzaj膮, jestem na nie przygotowana i organizm ju偶 po prostu z czasem przyzwyczai艂 si臋 do funkcjonowania w -25 stopniach.

Gusty winds on K2, in the next few days we are facing gale force winds of 80-100km/h in the Base. We have to wait for it. Yes, expeditions in the Himalayas mean more waiting than action. All the pre-peak action is over. Now we are waiting only for the weather window, that is at least 3 days in a row, when the wind force on the summit will be low. Max 25km/h. Here only the weather determines my decisions. No other negative or positive events influence my motivation and determination. I know what I am here for and so far all my mountaineering has gone according to plan and in good health. This is my fourth 8k expedition and definitely feels the best of all the previous ones. Winter conditions don't bother me that much, I'm prepared for them and my body just got used to functioning in -25 degrees.

G艂臋boko wierz臋, 偶e wyczyn takiego kalibru nigdy nie jest mo偶liwy, je艣li nie ma si臋 celu lub je艣li ma si臋 go tylko dla w艂asnej chwa艂y.
Zawsze wiedzia艂em do czego zdolny jest m贸j umys艂 i cia艂o. M贸wi膮c wprost, na wcze艣niejszych etapach ewolucji nosi艂em tlen od 8000m wzwy偶, ale osobi艣cie by艂em zadowolony z wydajno艣ci pracy do 8000m. To by艂 m贸j wyb贸r i mia艂em swoje w艂asne powody i etos.
Trudno by艂o tym razem podj膮膰 decyzj臋, czy wspina膰 si臋 z dodatkowym tlenem (O2), czy bez niego. Ze wzgl臋du na warunki pogodowe i ramy czasowe, nie aklimatyzowa艂em si臋 odpowiednio. Mog艂em spa膰 tylko na wysoko艣ci obozu 2 (6.600 m). Idealnie by艂oby, gdyby wspinacze musieli spa膰 LUB przynajmniej dotkn膮膰 Obozu 4 przed wej艣ciem na szczyt. Brak aklimatyzacji, mr贸z od pierwszej rotacji i spowolnienie innych cz艂onk贸w zespo艂u, zagra偶aj膮ce bezpiecze艅stwu wszystkich, by艂y kluczowymi niewiadomymi.
Bezpiecze艅stwo mojego zespo艂u jest i zawsze by艂o moim najwa偶niejszym priorytetem. Do tej pory poprowadzi艂em 20 udanych wypraw i wszyscy cz艂onkowie mojego zespo艂u wr贸cili do domu dok艂adnie tak, jak opu艣cili dom, tzn. bez utraty palc贸w u r膮k i n贸g.
Tym razem podj膮艂em wyliczone ryzyko i naciska艂em bez dodatkowego O2. Moja pewno艣膰 siebie, znajomo艣膰 si艂y i mo偶liwo艣ci mojego cia艂a oraz do艣wiadczenie ze wspinaczki na 14 x 8000 metr贸w pozwoli艂y mi nad膮偶y膰 za reszt膮 cz艂onk贸w zespo艂u, a mimo to prowadzi膰.
! K2 ZIMA BEZ DODATKOWEGO TLENU!
Jest wiele przypadk贸w, w kt贸rych wspinacze nie zdobywali szczyt贸w bez tlenu, ale pod膮偶ali naszym szlakiem, 偶e palili艣my i u偶ywali艣my lin i lin, kt贸re mieli艣my zamontowane. Niekt贸re z nich s膮 powszechnie znane w wewn臋trznej spo艂eczno艣ci wspinaczkowej. Co jest klasyfikowane jako sprawiedliwe 艣rodki?
Osobi艣cie, nigdy nie by艂o to dla mnie powa偶n膮 spraw膮 i nadal tak nie jest. Pochodz膮c z zaplecza si艂 specjalnych Wielkiej Brytanii, by艂e艣 i robisz r贸偶ne rzeczy, ale nie robimy wielkiego zamieszania ze wszystkim. To jest osobisty wyb贸r. Natura i g贸ry s膮 dla wszystkich. 馃檹馃徏馃檶馃徏

(ORGINAL TXT) K2 winter was a beast of a challenge. I firmly believe that a feat of such caliber is never possible if you don鈥檛 have a purpose or if it is only aimed for your own self glory. I have always known what my mind and body are capable off. To lay it out straight, on my previous evolutions I had been carrying oxygen from 8000m and above, but I was personally satisfied with my work efficiency up to 8000m. It was my choice and I had my own reasons and ethos. It was a tough call this time inorder to make that decision whether to climb with or without supplementary oxygen (O2). Due to the weather conditions and time frame, I hadn鈥檛 acclimatised adequately. I was only able to sleep as high as Camp 2 (6,600m). Ideally climbers need to sleep OR at least touch Camp 4 before heading for a summit push. Lack of acclimatisation, developed frost bite from the first rotation and slowing down other team members, risking everyone鈥檚 safety, were the key uncertainties associated. The safety of my team is and always have been my top priority above all. I have lead 20 successful expeditions so far and all my team members have returned home the exact way that they had left home i.e. without loosing any fingers or toes. I took a calculated risk this time and I pressed on without supplementary O2. My self confidence, knowing my body鈥檚 strength, capability and my experience from climbing the 14 x 8000ers enabled me to keep up with the rest of the team members and yet lead. JOB DONE ! K2 WINTER WITH NO SUPPLEMENTARY OXYGEN ! There are many cases, where climbers have claimed no O2 summits but followed our trail that we blazed and used the ropes and lines that we had fixed. Some of which are widely known within the inner climbing community. What is classified as fair means? Personally, it had never been a major deal for me and it still isn鈥檛. Coming from a United Kingdom鈥檚 special forces background, you have been and done all sorts but we don鈥檛 make a big fuss about everything. It is a personal choice. Nature and the mountains are for everyone. You make your own call ! 馃檹馃徏馃檶馃徏.

W przyw贸dztwie nie zawsze chodzi o to, czego chcesz. Budowanie inspiruj膮cej wizji jest kluczem. Decyzja o zdobyciu szczytu by艂a trudna.

Stanie na szczycie, obserwowanie czystej si艂y kra艅c贸w matki natury by艂o ekscytuj膮ce. Dzi臋kujemy za wsparcie, kt贸re otrzymali艣my od ludzi na ca艂ym 艣wiecie, da艂o nam to ogie艅 w piersi, aby ten cel urzeczywistni膰.馃馃徏

(ORGINAL TXT) Leadership isn鈥檛 always about what you want. Building an inspiring vision is key. The decision to hit the summit was a tough one. It was one of the hardest push ever, no denial. There had been close calls where team members nearly turned around due to the extreme cold. But everyone was pushing themselves to the edge of their limits for a purpose; a common goal, to make the K2 winter happen, to make the last greatest mountaineering challenge happen, with a positive power and honour. Standing on the summit, witnessing to the sheer force of the extremities of mother nature was exhilarating. Thank you for the support we鈥檝e received from people all around the globe, it gave us fire in our chest to make this goal a reality.

As it happens in the highest mountains, beautiful news alternates with tragic ones. We accomplished our task, we got from Base Camp straight to Camp II in one day, it took us 13h, we covered 1600m of elevation gain. Feeling very good at altitude and sufficiently acclimatized! Yesterday the summit was reached by 10 Nepalese ! The history card has been closed. Congratulations to all ! Unfortunately, during yesterday's descent to the Base Camp, I witnessed a Spanish climber flying several hundred meters. The injuries were so serious that there was no way to save Sergi. A wonderful person gone forever. I have a feeling that each of us here has his own limit of luck. I don't want to strain mine and I don't plan any more acclimatization trips. Every exit is a lottery.

(ORGINAL TXT) TRAGEDY AND TRIUMPH - When Dr Jon Kedrowski and I returned to basecamp today after sleeping in Camp 2 and safely descending the mountain, we received two pieces of information within seconds of each other. My mind is overwhelmed and still processing the polarity of these two events that happened at roughly the same time.

1. A highly experienced Spanish climber, Sergi Mingote, tragically fell on the same part of the mountain Jon and I had just come down, from Camp 1 to ABC. Devastatingly, he did not survive the fall. Though I didn鈥檛 know him well, his tent is directly across from mine in basecamp and we chatted most days. The news of his accident is very fresh and I鈥檓 still processing all that this means. It is heartbreaking. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and loved ones.

2. 10 Nepalese climbers collaborated to make the first ascent of K2 in winter today at 5pm local time. Huge congratulations to all of the climbers on this success. I can鈥檛 think of a more deserving group to achieve this unparalleled feat. Historically, Nepalese Sherpa have been the backbone of most major high altitude climbing expeditions, but too often their names have been passed over by history. It鈥檚 a monumental moment in climbing history for these 10 Nepalese men to claim 鈥渢he last great prize in mountaineering.鈥 Well deserved! Immense congratulations. They summited right around sunset here, so they will have a long descent in the dark. Please send them positive energy and strength for a safe descent. We don鈥檛 need any more tragedy on the mountain today.

Juan Pablo and I on our little rock ledge that we can barely fit on, but is an amazing vantage point over the entire Karakorum. Finally, Tamara Lunger and Alex Gavan preferred to stay in C2 Alto. There was a constant wind at night and it didn't stop at all in the morning. It was an unpleasant day, but it was our program and we wanted to complete it. Two powerful "oxygen teams" are the field above and with a good forecast for tomorrow, they might give it a try. We are very heavy. Without oxygen everything is more noticeable, cold, windy and steep. We will continue with the plan Today at 23:43 By the way . John has not passed the Black Pyramid and will be sleeping with his team at the foot of the mountain. The truth is that this section of the route is difficult. Ice and rock in a dark place. We are very, very, very happy. We have accomplished more in the acclimatization process than we could have dreamed. But we feel so good that we want to keep dreaming about the summit. : C1 - Light sleeping bags, mats, food, gas, stove, tent, extra climbing gear C2 - Sleeping bags below 50 degrees, mats, food, gas, stove, tent. C3 - Lightweight -Gas Tent. Of course tomorrow it is time to descend to CB and that is dangerous. We wish the Nims and Migma G team good luck for tomorrow! Friends of "Dream Big," more tomorrow.

More than 5000ft of unrelenting steep blue ice and rocky terrain. The good weather windows are short lived in the winter so likely on a summit push we鈥檒l need to skip camps and move up fast like we did today. After both having been shaken up after getting hit by rockfall a couple days ago, today鈥檚 effort restored our confidence. We are now huddled on an even more precarious ledge for the night than we were at Camp 1 when we slept there a couple weeks ago. It might be a little bit of a rough night in the freezing cold (-35C tonight) and thin air, but sleeping at our high point will be great for our acclimatization and future summit attempt.
