30 years ago - almost to the day - I was on a climbing expedition in Nepal with Icelandic friends. During the climb two of them, Kristinn and Torsteinn disappeared and, despite searches, no trace or clue was found. Then, a couple of weeks ago, an American climber came across their remains. A mountain guide from Iceland who had just returned from Nepal (and therefore acclimatised to altitude) went back to Nepal and brought them down. Tonight they were cremated in Kathmandu. Inevitably the last days have brought many emotions to the surface for all who knew and loved these wonderful guys, but it has also brought people together and I pray will help with greater closure and, in time, peace.
