Elia Saikaly recalled accompanying the K2 Winter Expedition 2021 and referred to Ali Sadpara as a ‘living legend’.

Recently the Pakistani mountaineer set out to summit the world’s second highest peak without oxygen, with Icelandic climber John Snorri, Chilean mountaineer JP Mohr, and his son Sajid Sadpara.

“For two and a half weeks we filmed and shared precious time with this living legend. #AliSadpara The last scene I filmed with Ali was at camp 2 on K2. John, Ali and Sajid were telling me on camera how excited they were to summit.”

The image shared by Elia Saikaly is at Camp-2, the last scene the filmmaker shot for his documentary about this group of climbers attempting the winter summit of the ‘savage mountain’.

Muhammad Ali Sadpara, John Snorri, and Juan Pablo Mohr were last seen on Friday around noon at the Bottleneck, what is considered the most difficult part of the climb up K2. The Bottleneck is a steep and narrow gully just 300 metres shy of the 8,611 metre (28,251 ft) high K2.

Muhammad Ali Sadpara recently celebrated his birthday on February, 2nd. Meanwhile Chilean mountaineer Juan Pablo Mohr would have turned 34 on February 9th.
