Plans for 2016-2018
are located at the northeastern end of the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram range of the border of Chinese- Shaksgam Valley and the Gilgit-Baltistan territory of Pakistan. Gasherbrums are often claimed to mean “Shining Wall”, presumably a reference to the highly visible face of Gasherbrum IV; but in fact it comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) “brum” (mountain) in Balti, hence it actually means “beautiful mountain.
Gasherbrum I was first climbed on July 5, 1958 by Pete Schoening and Andy Kauffman of an eight-man American expedition
Gasherbrum -II climbed my Austrian team on July 7, 1956, by Fritz Moravec, Josef Larch and Hans Willenpart by the Southwest Ridge.
