Army Rescue Operation Initiated for the recovery of John Snorri, Ali Sadpara, and Juan Pablo Mohr at K2. It’s already been more than 30 hours, we (at basecamp) have received no news of John Snorri, Ali Sadpara, and Juan Pablo Mohr. 5th Feb at 1 AM PKT John, Ali, and Sajid starting their final summit push from C III, Juan Pablo (No O2) joined the team.
Yesterday noon, Ali’s son (Sajid) reported from C III that they were together till Bottle Neck around 10 AM PKT, all were fine and in a good shape and heading toward the summit, due to the problem with his oxygen regulator Sajid had to return to C III from Bottle Neck.
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 nepali team 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. Received confirmed message from Army, they sent two helicopters along with 2 Pakistani Climbers, for Search and Rescue mission. The pilot has been instructed to take the flight up as maximum as possible, it’s very low temperature and 35+ KM wind above 6500m.
At the basecamp, now we have prepared oxygen bottles, high foods, masks, and regulators for 2 Pakistani climbers (HAP). Now at Basecamp – Waiting Army Helicopter

Nimsdai Further added his words on completing this historical K2 Expedition in 2021. He expressed his gratitude and ecouraging words for his team and to the whole world specially.
Leadership isn’t 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 positive power and honor.
Standing on the summit, witnessing the sheer force of the extremities of mother nature was exhilarating. Thank you for the support we’ve received from people all around the globe, it gave us fire in our chest to make this goal a reality.
