A French climber rescued from a Himalayan peak is recovering and will soon return home, Pakistani officials said.Elisabeth Revol, suffering from frostbite and exhaustion, was rescued by volunteers from a separate Polish expedition on Sunday from Nanga Parbat, also known as "killer mountain". Bielecki and Denis Urubko, a Russian climber with Russian and Polish citizenship, reached Revol after a climb of some eight hours to the height of about 7,400 meters above sea level.All four are members of a Polish expedition that will attempt the first-ever winter ascent of K2, the world's second tallest mountain.Revol and Mackiewicz were attempting to summit Nanga Parbat, the ninth highest peak in the world at 8,126 meters, or 26,660 feet.Majer said Mackiewicz, who started climbing a few years ago, had dreamed of scaling Nanga Parbat in winter.
