 Pumori 7151 meters: Autumn 2001

Bad news again from Spain... Five young Basque climbers, from Navarra and Guipuzkoa are reported missing since yesterday in Pumori area, near Everest. This small and young expedition was trying to climb Pumori. This was their first experience in Nepal. Actually their situation is unconfirmed, although other reports assured their death. Yesterday there was a big avalanche in this area and it was impossible to contact the climbers via radio. Spanish TV actually is reporting that they are dead. Stay tuned... Best regards Pedro

Some more fresh news: It is confirmed that 2 members of Basque expedition Sakana- Pumori were found dead by Benatzio Irureta. Their names are unknown. A big avalanche had trapped this expedition two days ago. The names of five members missing, are: [We are going to withhold this information for now.] Best regards Pedro

Update 10/19/2001: Sadly, it is fully confirmed. Five members of Basque expedition Sakana-Pumori are reported dead. Benantxio Irureta, had confirmed that the 5 climbers were trapped by a huge avalanche at approximately 5500 meters between camps I and II Pumori (7167 meters). Two dead bodies have been located by a Nepalese helicopter but in a very dangerous place, so they probably will remain there. There is not believed to be any chance of finding the rest of the climbers alive. The rest of expedition members are safe at Lobuche. Best regards Pedro
