Dempster, 33, and Adamson, 34, are two of “the worlds largest” effected alpinists of their generation, Thesenga announced. The pair cleared the same attempt last year, when Dempster break-dance his leg after a 100 ft tumble and the two then descended 400 ft when attempting to get down the mountain.

Six other climbers, including 2 from the US, were at basi camp on the mountain and ready to ascend if they were needed to help, he said.

They have built their business on cutting-edge alpine ascendings from Pakistan to Alaska, Thesenga enunciated. We persist rosy that they are going to get out of the mountains and have this amazing floor of survival to share.

The Ogre massif, also known as Baintha Brakk, is regarded as one of the most difficult climbs in the world thanks to its engulf, rocky faces. Doug Scott, the legendary British climber, broke both legs on the first ever rising of the Ogre in 1977 and “its just not” clambered again until 2001.
