ISLAMABAD: Another crisis ended happily after a climber who ran into trouble in a possible icefall was rescued by fellow Polish, American and Pakistani mountaineers on Saturday.

“This time it was a Pakistani porter who needed assistance on the Gasherbrum glacier. The stricken climber had to be lowered down the slopes in a makeshift sled by Denis Urubko, a Kazakh climber, and Sergi Mignote from Spain,” said Alpine Club of Pakistan Secretary Karrar Haidri.

The official said on Sunday that Denis Urubko assisted in the third rescue mission to get the Pakistani porter to safety after rescuing a Lithuanian climber from the same glacier, who was suffering from fatigue and extreme cold.
