K2 last update

august 9 2008

I'm sorry I haven't been able to update the K2 tragedy.

But I gather the media took care of it.

Marco was saved and had frozen feet.

At august 7 Wilco van Rooijen and Cas van Greven were transported to Islamabad.
The weather was OK to fly and the decision was taken within a short time.
It wouldn't have been iwse to have wated, because Wilco's feet were froozen so badly, he might have suffered more damage when he had to go by bus.

Marco arrived in Islamabad too with serious frostbite in his legs, and he and Roberto met the Dutch again.

The media have published some stories which were based on the wish to create a story from fragments.
Those who were on the mountain will be able to tell their own stories when and if they feel the need to do so.

There is no place for stories of heroism in the light of the loss of so many lifes.

Those who were missing were never seen again.

May they rest in peace at one of the most powerful places on earth.


  1. God bless those who lost their lives on K2, doing what they loved to do and fully aware of the risks involved.

  2. Large praise for this well written and easily understandable contribution. I take up this blog to my favorites and times will soon again by-look.

  3. I can only hope people will show their respect to all who were there, and to all who died, and stop speculating and pointing fingers.


Thank you for your comment.
