Fabrizio is amongst a group of climbers who are trying to rescue another climber high on Latok 2. This is a mountain in the Karakorum. He had been planning to leave and go to Skardu but instead has stayed to help a fellow climber.
Oscar Perez became stranded on Latok 2 after injuring himself a number of days ago. He is believed to be stranded at about 6500m. They had been trying to climb a difficult and unclimbed route on this mountain. Only climbers who have been acclimatized and very experienced are able to mount a rescue at this height and difficulty.
Recently Fabrizio led a team from Field Touring Alpine on an unsuccessful attempt of K2. There were no summits of K2 this year.
