Ron’s trip into the Karakorum to climb Broad Peak is still underway as they make the final trek into base camp.

A tragedy has taken place in the Karakorum. Terrorist attack at Nanga Parbat base camp: at least 10 dead. Our Ambassador Athlete Ron Hoglin is safe and his trip looks as though it will continue, and they will still attempt their ascent of Broad Peak.

Many other expeditions in the region have been turned away and are not being allowed into the mountains, and others are opting to back down on their own and leave the region. Our thoughts go out to all who lost their lives while doing what they loved.
