The team summited in the early evening on the 5th of March.
Artur Małek and Adam Bielecki then managed to descend safely to Camp 4 (7,400m) but Tomasz Kowalski and Maciej Berbeka are reported to have bivved at around 7900m due to being too exhausted to continue down.
Tomasz Kowalski and Maciej Berbeka are now considered to be missing on the mountain.
