A French climber stranded on one of Pakistan’s most deadly Himalayan mountains has been flown to hospital after a dramatic rescue operation.
But the search for Elisabeth Revol’s Polish climbing partner was called off.
Ms Revol and Tomasz Mackiewicz were climbing Nanga Parbat, nicknamed “Killer Mountain”, when they got stuck at 7,400m (24,280ft) on Friday.
An elite Polish climbing team on nearby K2 came to the rescue, scaling Nanga Parbat overnight to rescue Ms Revol.
“Elisabeth is in the hospital in Islamabad. She has severe frostbite on her hands and feet,” Ludovic Giambiasi, a friend of Ms Revol, wrote in a post on Facebook on Sunday.
