Shit. A friend of mine is going to climb that very same mountain in a few days. He told me about the Hungarian expedition last Sunday, before the news of their disappearance reached here.

Five days missing really doesn't look good. There doesn't seem to be much hope. Those Sichuan mountains are real man-eaters.
