  Everest Summiter without oxygen Gerfried Goschl reports in International Broad Peak / K2 expedition:


Copyright© Billy Pierson

Dear EverestNews.com, all members are save and sound in Skardu. Its real hot here!! Tomorrow we depart for Askole. We want to reach BC of Broad Peak on 27. June. Nice greetings, Gerfried Goschl

Earlier: Dear EverestNews.com, on Saturday (day of the Broad Peak first climb) we had our official kickoff in a festival with many climbers of Broad Peak (Wintersteller and Diemberger, Doug Scott, Simone Moro, Siegi and Gaby Hupfauer, Viki Goselj, Janusz Majer and ......).

We got some money for my families help-project for the earthquake victims in Pakistan. Big thanks to the organizers of the festival, the children of Markus Schmuck (who died 1,5 years ago) and Fritz Wintersteller. 

We are the Austrian International OeAV Broad Peak Golden Jubilee and K2 Expedition 2007. OeAV is the short form of the Austrian Alpine Club . Also the first climb of the Broad Peak had been a OeAV expedition.We are very happy about the information from our agent Mr. Asghar Ali Porik that our cargo already arrived in Islamabad. He stored 58 pieces for us!

On Sunday 17. June we will leave. If all works well we will reach BC of Broad Peak latest on 27. June.

We are 22 climbers, together we have already climbed 21 8000m-summits. We are from 7 nations (Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, USA, Mexico and Ecuador). Nearly all climbers are good friends of mine. They climbed with me already in the big mountains or shared the same goals.

We want to climb together 2 mountains, first Broad Peak, then K2. After Broad Peak some of us will leave the BC to walk home. 9 of us (Me, Günther Unterberger, brothers Hans and Georg Wenzl, Ronald Newerkla, Kilian Volken, Louis Rousseau, Ken Hill and Pepe Jijon) will go up to the BC of K2 to attempt the mountains, after a well acclimatisation on BP, in a fast and light .....

We hope that weather and health will be good to us.

Next news will be from Pakistan.

Nice greetings

Gerfried Göschl
