Rick Allen dies while climbing the world’s second highest peak K2. Facebook
A famous Scottish mountaineer Rick Allen died in an avalanche while attempting to climb the world’s second highest mountain K2. This information was given by a mountaineering officer of Pakistan. Pakistan’s Alpine Club secretary Karrar Hydari said 68-year-old Rick Allen had died in an avalanche three days ago.
It is being told that he was trying to reach the summit from a direction which had not been used for mountaineering before. Hydari said two of Allen’s aides survived the avalanche and were later evacuated. The purpose of his campaign was to raise funds for the UK-based charitable organization ‘Partners Relief and Development’. Allen was a member of this board. The charity, which works for the welfare of children, confirmed Allen’s death on its Facebook page.
Drone accident detected
After the avalanche, the news of Allen and his companions being victims of the accident was received through the drone. It was only through the drone that Alan’s death came to know. Also his companions were saved. A statement issued by the charity said, ‘Rick died while doing the work he loved the most. He lived his life with full courage.
In 2018 also survived the avalanche
Very experienced climber Rick Allen was caught in an avalanche in 2018 as well. At that time he was trying to climb the K2-like peak Broad Peak in the Karakoram range of the Pakistan-China border. The rescue teams were able to rescue them safely. There are many high mountain peaks in Pakistan, which climbers from all over the world come every year to climb.
3 climbers died
In the same year, three climbers died while climbing K2. These included Pakistani climber Ali Sadpara, Iceland’s John Sanori and Chile’s Juan Pablo Mohr. All three were trying to climb the second highest peak (8611 m). Despite the long operation with the help of the army, their bodies could not be brought back. Last week, South Korean climber Kim Hong Bin went missing after being trapped in bad weather in the high mountain ranges. So far they have not been traced.
