Update: Attempt to rescue Russian mountaineer
One of the best Russian alpinists, Alexander Gukov , has stuck at about 6200 meters on Latok I (7,145m) after the death of his climbing companion Sergey Glazunov.
The rescue team is waiting for weather improvement, they will try a long line rescue, in a very dangerous position.
Gukov and Glazunov traveled to Pakistan with the aim of completing the north ridge of Latok I, first attempted during 26 days in 1978 by the Americans.
The helicopters cannot move due to bad weather. They are on standby position and as soon as the weather clears they shall operate as planned.
