of the Gasherbrum II
1889-1929 The international expedition headed by the
Swiss G.O. Dyhrenfurth studies possible
ways to the top of the Gasherbrum II and
gets to 6250 meters on the south flank.
First ascent via the southwest spur by an
Austrian expedition headed by F. Moravec.
Fritz Moravec along with Josef Larch and Hans
Willenpart starts from a
bivouac at 7700 meters via the east spur to the
summit on 7th.
Second ascent by a French group, 19 years after the first ascent. During
this expedition, the first victim at the
Gasherbrum has to be lamented. In this
year, three expeditions get to the
summit, among others a Polish women team
headed by W. Rutkiewicz.
A Chilean and a German expedition
succeeded in the 6th and 7th ascent.
1982: R. Messner Summits with two Pakistanis.
During the legendary double ascent of two
8000 peaks, Messner and H. Kammerlander
get to the summit of Gasherbrum II and
afterwards Hidden Peak. Counting
and registration is more complicated
during the following years because some
illegal teams got to the summit. Both
peaks belong to the less frequently
climbed 8000 peaks. Per year, only 2 to 3
permits are given.
