On Monday May 30th at 07:00 am local time (03:15 uur CEST) the search for Christiaan has started.

Based on the available information, it’s logical to look at the trekking of Basecamp (BC) to Beni (see map). De first part of descending 1000 height meters is 3 hours on a glacier. Depending on fresh snow, this can be risky.

If there is no snow a lot less. Because there seems to have been Facebook contact on May 17 (!) and Christiaan left from base camp the 15/16th, it would be likely that he has past the glacier and reached/passed Italian camp. This is not more than a day from BC (1000 hm). However Snowy Horizon (expedition agency) says there is no message that he’s been here.
