Food for thought – Loosing family
Not sure really if this the right thing to do but I feel like I need let some of it go.
My brother has been climbing in Peru the last month with his climbing partner, his partner got ill so my brother decided to do a solo mountain climb which he told us he was doing and his partner, when he got the national park he signed in to do a long distance trekking route which us and his partner didn’t know about so my partner raised the Alarm as he had not returned from this long distance route. So they found out he did this long distance route and he wasn’t due back for another day, later that day the guides went up to search the mountain he told us he was climbing and found his sleeping bag and some other gear at the base of the peak. So this means that he has been to climb the shorter mountain peak which means he is over due by over 5 days.
They are starting a new rescue team that is going out earlier today so search the whole of the hill.
Sorry for my English but i’m in a state and for the heavy reading but I just need supportPosted 4 years agoscotroutesSubscriber
Hope it turns out OK.
FWIW, a few days ago, a tent was found “abandoned” in Torridon and there were searches for the unknown, missing walker – only it turned out he wasn’t missing at all, he was doing some geological survey of the mountainside and turned up safe and sound, wondering what all the fuss was about.Posted 4 years ago
Sorry to tell you people but today they are calling off the search due to the weather and will be continuing later this week to recover the body.
Anyone doing this extreme sports please continue to do them as that’s what you love doing but please take caution as being through this has made me realize how much it hurts.
Thanks for the supportPosted 4 years ago
It is very true that he wasn’t someone for sitting around, he was someone that would give anything a go even if he wasn’t good at it. I’m glad he was doing something he enjoyed when he wasn’t climbing he was reading about it suppose I a bit like us but mot obsessive haha.Posted 4 years ago
Thank you for all your support, as you have probably heard on the radio and in the newspaper about the situation. They stopped the search a couple of days a go due to bad weather conditions and will be going back up to search for the body later this week, I would like to thank the guides in Peru for trying so hard which they currently lost one of the guides on rescue for my brother so please think about his family as well.
Every sport is dangerous and I don’t want to put people off doing what they enjoy but please take some precautions to make sure they arrive home safely.Posted 4 years ago
