Story short - A long story short; we stayed up all night in a poorly heated hostel watching movies and staying in contact by radio and phone.10 men were looking for our buddies, 5 of them professional mountain guides that new the area. Even though the lads had a GPS watch and we knew the coördinates, they were not found. (VERY disappointed with the guides...).The guys made their way to a road on their own in the morning from where we picked them up. They were cold and hungry but ok. I am guessing they were also a lesson wiser.
