Latok I. According to GPS signal received yesterday at 12:40pm Alexander Gukov and Sergey Glazunov were at 6975m. This is their second attempt to complete Kennedy-Lowe III-Lowe-Donini North Ridge route.
the most probably a battery died then and till now we don't have any connections with guys. it's snowing up there so another Russian team who descended to BC three days ago could not see them.
keep fingers crossed.


Yesterday and today guys without contact. Most likely sat accum. There's still a phone, but it's in the upper � Camp and also probably dead.
At Night, I wake up to see if there's any news.
Yesterday at 12:40 noon sanya with serëgoj were at 6975 M. Predveršinnyj Comb starts somewhere at 7050 M.
Top 7145 M.
If they went out yesterday and started the descent, then to the top camp, at 6780 M, where there is food � and tent � / cave, must come down.
The weather is bad It's raining down there, it's snowing.
From The Base Camp, they are not visible. Vitya Koval promised, if today turns, go under the gantry wall, see them in binoculars.
Come on, guys, we're waiting for you here.

Upd Vitya Koval: see the tent at 6700, the tent has one person.
The helicopter flew out, will be in place at 8:30 Moscow. Vitya Koval on board.
Prepared a drop of food and gas, try to drop.

Upd Vitya Koval: " made flying walls on a military helicopter. Guys slowly but dûlʹferâût in the area 6700. Dropped them food and gas
