A Malaysian climber is missing on Damavand Iran
The latest breaking news from Damawand Mountain, 6 August 2013


A Malaysian climber was lost on Damavand Volcano yesterday. He was last seen by his friends on Monday August 5th at about 5 PM Tehran local time at about 5400 meters in the sulphuric hills, a part of the mountain jsut bellow the crater approx less that one hour to the top, while ascending. The missing climber is called Mr. Lee Kheng Teck.

He was a member of a Malaysian expedition team with 11 young members. Ten of them left the high camp, Camp 3 Bargah Sevom on the southern ridge , at 9:30 for acclimatization. After reaching the acclimatization target, 3 members decided to return back to the C3 and returend back safely. But the others decided to continue to Damavand peak.

The summit team was divided in two groups. First group contained 3 fast climbers reached the summit after about 5 hours and the second team also included 3 participants reached the top after about 6 hour. While descending they all saw their slow tired friend Lee near the peak but non of them remained in the area to help him!

We are closely following up the news of the Malaysian climber who went missing on Damawand yesterday. A member of this expedition said that two rescue efforts to find the missing climber have so far failed, search is going on by local mountaineers. Up to now, 6th August, Tuesday night, there has been no report for rescue helicopter in the area in coordination with Iran Mountaineering & Sport Climbing Federation.

The Mount Damavand Guide team is looking forward to see helicopter flights and more efforts to locate and rescue this missing Malaysian climbers alive soon.

Weather
Other than some strong wing on the mountain, there has been no report of any severe weather, bad conditions, heavy fog or low visibility during the incident day. Damavand weather reports indicate that good conditions will continue over the mountain for several more days, making search and rescue efforts possible.

Possibility
There is the possibility that after successfully conquering the summit, he had run out of energy and he had strayed toward the other routes of the mountain during his desend.
