GASHERBRUM (V) EXPEDITION

Gasherbrum (V )7147m) Organized by Summit Karakoram 2014

The remote Gasherbrum range peak was one of the last unclimbed challenges in the region. On July 25,2014 two of our famous alpine Korean climbers stood on top of the 7,147-meter peak.

Nak-jong Seong and Chi-young Ahn arrived at base camp in early summer. After attempting the north face they changed plans to the south side. After a three-kilometer glacier approach they started climbing the southeast face at 4,770 meters.

After one bevy at 6,550 meters and a 24-hour descent, they arrived back at base camp. There ascent was made in pure alpine style.
