Ismail mentioned that the retrieval operation had been ongoing since last Tuesday when firefighters received the report of the deceased climber. However, he noted that their efforts faced challenges due to heavy rain and thick clouds in the mountainous area. The victim's body is expected to be transferred to Jerantut Hospital for further examination.
