Although the Georgian climbers have not enjoyed a lot of press, they have an impressive background of highly technical new routes and first ascents,” reports.

The Georgian climbers arrived in Pakistan to scale  Saraghrar on Aug 16 and scaled the peak on Sept 9.

The Georgian climbers team now is willing to help three other Pakistani-Czech climbers stranded in Mount Rakaposhi.

Archil Badriashvili, who is leading the Georgian team of climbers, shared his team’s desire with Explorersweb to help rescue the mountaineers trapped at 6,900m of Rakaposhi.
