West Ridge, Solo 2005

Deep snow/bad avy conditions turned me back. Highest point reached 7800m just below the Col. For the final two bids I was the only climber on the mountain- not even one tent in base camp. So awesome..

Broad Peak 2006

Part of a Broad Peak/K2 double header. I reached 21,000' on Broad or Camp 2 before abandoning the climb due to weakness that resulted from a severe bug I contracted on the trek in. The Karakorum ranges was magnificent and I was very lucky to have unbelievable weather for the month I spent there.

Route Climbed: Austrian First Ascent 1957: West Ridge Date Climbed: 9 June 1957  Sucess!

The II. Attack to the Summit (June 9, 1957)

Whit Sunday and no clouds in the sky. We could not have it any better. We leave the camp at 4:00. Until now we have the warmth of the sleeping bags in us. Soon crawls the cold into our limbs. The temperature is minus 30°. We get cold, although we are well dressed and we climb continuously. Marcus and I traverse to the old route, while Hermann and Kurt climb on the right side of the slope. At 8:30 we are at 7550m at the largest crevasse. We are now 2 hours faster than the last time. Here we warm up our toes in the sun. Again we continue and underneath the col we meet the other two, who have frozen toes also. Marcus and I lead the 300m trail to the col and the whole summit ridge together. At 16:00 we are on the West peak and at 17:05 on the 10m higher East peak. Kurt comes there also at 17:45. We meet Hermann at the West peak on the way back. At 20:00 I am back at Camp III. Marcus comes at 20:30. Hermann and Kurt just after midnight.
