great page! Especially the story of the first climb ... well... kind of happy end .... better than the K2-story ... It reminded me of a similar story of my former boy-friend. He did an unplannend bivouac on 7500 m on the Nanga Parbat. He could not climb down anymore because of fog ...it was less than -30°C... no sleeping bag, of course, nothing to drink anymore ... half dead ....
Now to your page: I think it would be useful if you add kind of an routes overview and a few sentences, although only very few people of SP, I guess, plan to climb it ... And could you perhaps add bookstore-links (also concerning a map) and make all links work (with the html-command)?
Thanks R. Information on this mountain is not easy. Especially routes. I will search out some book links for sure. These will have some information but the images will be copyrighted so that opens another issue. Cheers William
Thanks. I wish I could make it better. I don’t expect to be in Pakistan in the near future. This peak is out of my league. Cheers William
A page "ghirardini style" :). Good work!
Thank you for taking this over Ivano. Good job on the extra info.
It is a very good page, but the historical errors I commented several months ago have not been corrected. E.G. Karl Maria Herrligkoffer died in 1991 not in 1934. I hope these errors will be removed as the rest of the page is good and nice reading.

Good page. You can modified the links of the form: name for hypertext. See message board for this. Try it, It's more handy.
Good page. Nice to have a special section with some mountaineering history of the mountain, I like that!
Good, detailed piece of work
It could be much better. I am really only babysitting this peak. Thanks for your vote and Cheers. William
What a classic. Thanks William.
Great and informative page, William! Just improve the sharpness of these large photos on page.
Thanks for the vote. Yes those images could be sharper. I can not play with these only the submitter can control this. So that is the best we can dotill someone submits better images. Thanks again and Cheers William
There are three faces which people normally climb Nanga Parbat, Please add information on each base camp who to get there.
I am essentially baby sitting this page as the previous maintainer left the site. If you have information on these approaches please add and I will include on the page. Unfortunately it is hard for me to add first hand information as I have not been there.
Sorry Cheers William
Thanks for the post and vote. Cheers William
full info, great photo section ...the legendary mountain absolutely deserved such great presentation, well done !
