Oh, Chogolisa

I become sad, when I see the picture of this mountain, because it took the life of Hermann Buhl, austrian climber, who had conquered Nanga Parbat and Broad Peak for the first time. He was namely my alpinistic idol.
Nevertheless, the photo is very nice. Thanks for posting, Andrej

Re: Oh, Chogolisa

Mr. Hermann Buhl, a legend and a source of encouragement for many of todays best mountaineers. Hermann Buhl was extremely strong with almost extraordinary survival and will power, this is combination with taking great risks than the most others, and Herrmann Buhl succeeded where other failed. In 1957 Mr. Hermann Buhl and Mr. Kurt Diemberger has climed the Broad peak and after few days they have attempted Chogolisa, but it was the last mountain, near the summit he fell through a cornice to his death and we have lost a legendry climber. I also become very sad when I see the Chogolisa. Here I would like the quote Mr. Hermann Buhl
“Mountaineering is a relentless pursuit. One climbs further and further yet never reaches the destination. Perhaps that is what gives it its own particular charm. One is constantly searching for something never to be found.”
