Mazeno Ridge Climbers safe at Base Camp

Sandy Allan and Rick Allen arrived at the Diamir Face Base Camp of Nanga Parbat this morning (actually around noon Pakistan time).  They summitted by the Mazeno Ridge on Sunday 15th July. A Czech team are providing great hospitality!

Texts have been received from Sandy.  Both he and Rick are well (in an exhausted kind of way!)  It's expected that they will come out from BC quite quickly and meet up with the rest of the team.  It's a great (if not crazy) achievement and huge congratulations to all.  There is a story to tell and we look forward to hearing it.

Having had superb communications with the outside world for much of the trip it's been a tough few days not having had much news and grateful thanks go to the Planet Mountain team and in particular Nicholas Hobley and Vinicio Stefanello who have been intrinsic in providing the family with news: See their up to date article at:

Thanks also to the teams' agent (though he is much more), Muhammed Ali of Adventure Pakistan, his texts this morning were fabulous.  Laughter is a wonderful thing!
