Italy climber 'missing' on Nanga Parbat

Going up world's 9th highest peak with Briton Tom Ballard

(ANSA) - Aosta, February 26 - An Italian mountain climber trying the winter ascent of Himalayan peak Nanga Parbat in Pakistan has not been heard from in 48 hours, sources said Tuesday.
    Daniele Nardi is taking a new route up the world's ninth highest mountain, along the Mummery Spur.
    Briton Tom Ballard is with him.
    Nardi last called his wife from camp four at around 6,000 metres up on Sunday.
    The expedition staff said the lack of communications may be due to bad weather or phone batteries running out.
