Out of a total of 40 expeditions and 305 climbers there were 13 summits with a total of 56 summiteers in the 2010 climbing year of Karakoram. The biggest splash was done by l/r Denis, Simone and Cory on GII 2nd February 2011. Theirs was the first ever winter success on any peak above 8000 meters in Pakistan.
