MountEverest.net has posted an update on those two missing climbers on Changabang in the Indian Himalaya region. The search team now believes that the two Mexican climbers, Andres Delgado and Alfonso de la Parra, may have wandered into a highly restricted sanctuary area, and may be lost or stranded at around 5000 meters up.
If they are at that altitude the team feels confident about a successful rescue, as that is well beneath the “Death Zone” and the climbers should be able to survive quite comfortably at that height. The two have been missing for nearly two weeks, but are believed to have enough gear and supplies to hold out for the rescue efforts. I’ll post more as it becomes available.
