Beide Bergsteiger Daniele Nardi und Tom Ballard gefunden!

Traurige Gewissheit hat jeden Hoffnungfunken verdrängt. Die beiden am Nanga Parbat vermissten Bergsteiger Tom Ballard and Daniele Nardi wurden gefunden. Alex Txikon, der mit seinem Tele zwei ‘Silhouetten’ sah, hat ein Foto gemacht, das beide Bergsteiger in ihren Anzügen zeigen. Die Farben sind erkennbar, neben ihnen ihr Zeit.

Was genau passiert ist, wird wohl ein Geheimnis bleiben.

“Complicated moments for the mountain world. After the official confirmation of the families and the Italian ambassador in Pakistan, Stefano Pontecorvo, we can confirm that we finally finished with the search for Daniele Nardi and Tom Ballard.

After much effort, sacrifice and commitment we managed to find them; unfortunately, not the way we dreamed each day of the rescue … After our first indications of March 5 to find the silhouettes, until day 6 we could not confirm it. At that moment our forces were summarized in having given everything to be able to give an answer to their families.

The Nanga Parbat has taken two great and brilliant climbers. They have left before their time, but without a doubt, doing what they liked best. Within this dangerous aspect chosen by both climbers, I think that the choice of line was very intelligent.

From here, I want to thank the entire rescue team, an incredible job in really hard conditions. We are sorry we could not do anything else for them. Our deepest sympathy goes to the family and team of Daniele Nardi and Tom Ballard. I carry friends in your heart. You will be part of the history of mountaineering forever.”
