ISLAMABAD: Sajid Sadpara has announced to climb K2 to make a documentary on his late father Ali Sadpara and his companions John Snorri (Iceland) and MP Mohr (Chile) who lost their lives on this mountain in winter this year.
While addressing a presser on Thursday, Sajid said he and his team including foreign climbers are going to climb K2 tomorrow. “I and my team are going to climb K2 from tomorrow. It is our biggest challenge in which we will also make a documentary on my father and his companion Snorri and try to find out what happened with them back then,” he said.
“Interest in climbing has developed in me from my father. He was the first person to climb K2. Unfortunately, they lost their lives in the previous K2 summit due to weather. We will go there and find out what happened to them,” he added.
It must be noted here that Ali was the renowned climber of Pakistan with climbing eight out of the world’s 14 highest peaks. In January this year, he alongside his son and Snorri, and Mohr made a second attempt to climb the world’s second-highest peak.
Sajid had returned to the base camp from 8,000m after suffering breathing issues but Ali, Snorri, and Mohr continued the summit. Sajid claimed that his father and team completed the summit and went missing on their return.
A rescue operation by Pakistan Army held for days after the climbing team went missing. After days of the search operation, Sajid declared his father died as it was impossible to live for more than a day in weather like on K2.
