Mr. Ralph Hoibakk the 1st scaler of Tirich Mir East 7692m is coming to Chitral-Pakistan with other 4 climbers in August to celebrate his 50 years anniversary of his first attempt. The main peak Tirich Mir 7708m was also climbed for the first time by another Norwegian expedition in 1950, which was led by the famous philosopher Arne Naes.
