Mountaineering exploration in Pakistan for Matteo della Bordella, Massimo Faletti, Maurizio Giordani, David Hall

di

A group of Italian mountaineers comprised of Matteo della Bordella, Maurizio Giordani, Massimo Faletti and David Hall are about to embark on a one-month expedition to explore unchartered mountains in Pakistan.

An expedition consisting of the Italians Maurizio Giordani, Massimo Faletti and David Hall and the president of the Ragni di Lecco climbing club Matteo della Bordella is about to depart for Pakistan. The small group will be on expedition for an entire month exploring an area "practically unknown, but of great mountaineering interest."

Matteo della Bordella told planetmountain.com: "When Maurizio Giordani asked if I wanted to join him on his trip to Pakistan, at first I reluctantly refused because of another expedition scheduled for mid-August. But then, a week later, when I happened to meet Maurizio and he showed me the picture of the mountains I said to myself: "Wow, that's cool! This is an opportunity I just can’t miss “ and so I decided to jump on board this project."

The four intend to climb alpine style, taking with them only the bare minimum, in order to climb the large rock faces they have so far only seen in a photo given to them by a friend. At present they know little or nothing about mountains, not even the exact altitude (which they estimate to be around 6000 meters) nor how to get there.

Currently the only thing that is certain are the departure and return dates, 21 June and 20 July respectively. della Bordella concluded "we have decided to remain as isolated as possible and we won’t be making real-time updates about our progress so as to fully enjoy this adventure. We’ll provide information about our ascents and attempts only on our return to Italy."

It 2018 Giordani and Faletti travelled to Pakistan to make the first ascent of the hitherto unclimbed Kiris Peak, while in 2013 Matteo della Bordella, Luca Schiera and Silvan Schüpbach established a new route up the west face of Uli Biaho (6109m) in the Trango massif.
