Detailed Product Description

Panorama of Gasherbrum Peaks I-VI

Panorama from the Summit of Gasherbrum II (photos by Hans Willenpart)

Wien, 1961, 1st edition. 118 pp, many photos, many fold-out panoramas, geological maps, etc. In German. A scientific study of the geology of the Karakoram. As New condition. Paperback.
 
This study was made on the same expedition that made the first ascent of Gasherbrum 2. The first ascent came on July 7, 1956, by Austrians Fritz Moravec, Josef Larch and Hans Willenpart by the Southwest Ridge. After they set up Camp I, they had to descend, and found the camp and all their supplies and food buried by an avalanche when they returned. Despite this, they decided to make a quick summit attempt. After opening up a route, they left Camp III on June 6. The group spent the night in a bivouac sack and reached the top at 11:30 am the next day.
 
IN GERMAN. A superb Geological study of the northern Karakoram and Shaksgam Region in 1961, just as the 8000 meter peaks were being first climbed. This book is superb for all Karakoram students due to the incredible panoramas, illustrations, maps and photos. Paperback, Fine.
