Here are the stories of attempts and ascents from Mummery (1895), the pre-war German attempts (1932, ’34, ’37, ’38), Hermann Buhl’s first ascent (1953), the Messner brothers on the Rupal Face (1970), Reinhold’s solo ascent (1978), to Steve House and Vince Anderson on the Rupal Face (2005). 

Nanga Parbat bears many names: "Diamir", "King of the Mountains", "Destiny Mountain".
