BroadPeak (8051m) - New Route - Iranian Route
Setting out from third bivouac at 8000m, three Iranian climbers reached the summit of Broad Peak on Tuesday morning (16th July), but they haven’t been able to return to C3, yet. As of now, they are descending from the Pass (at around 7800m)
Kooh News has also posted another chain of emails, where Iranian home-team seeks suggestions from two finest alpinists of this age, Denis Urubko and Simone Moro, about current situation. Kazakhstan born Russian Denis Urubko carved a new route on Southwest Face (Iranian team also worked on same face) of Broad Peak in 2005. Italian Simone Moro is also a helicopter pilot who made record-breaking rescues above 7500m in Nepal, this spring. Their experience says, sadly, the chances of survival of Aidin, Pouya and Mojtaba are non-existent.
