Himalayan Trilogy once again, Himalayan Triptych Reactivated – 2008 climbing season.
Gasherbrum and Broad Peak traverses.
/Jun 09, 2008/ “The three-week rest that we took after the first part of the Himalayan Triptych Reactivated has come to an end,” reported Piotr Morawski last week. “We summitted Ama Dablam and then climbed on the Czech route on the NW face of Annapurna, which was one of the most beautiful expeditions I’d ever participated in. A mere 150 metres and a bit of luck was all we lacked to reach the top…”
“Still, it’s time to go back to our project, with parts two and three in one go. Peter Hamor and I are setting off to traverse the three Gasherbrum peaks: starting with GI (8068), via GII (8035) to GIII (7952), a long traverse that has never been completed in full before. We will ascend via the American route from Gasherbrum I side and descend from the pass between GII and GIII.”
“Then Piotr Pustelnik will join us for a Broad Peak’s traverse. Such climb that was first done in 1984 by Kurtyka and Kukuczka. They started from K2 Base Camp, climbed across the two Broad Peaks and descended from the main Broad Peak via the normal route. However, from the top of BP there is a beautiful ridge going down towards Concordia that has never been done in full and which we would like to climb to accomplish a complete traverse of Broad Peak’s points.”
Piotr’s mate Peter Hamor reported yesterday from Paiju – the climbers shall be on their way to Urdukas today.
