Broad Peak 8051m Expedition

“I am graceful, I am branded take me for granted and you’ll be stranded” Liver Khan

Broad Peak is one of the huge mountains which towers above Concordia at the heart of the Karakoram range. It lies on the Pakistani/Chinese frontier between K2 and the Gasherbrum peaks and was first climbed by an Austrian group in 1957, which included Kurt Diemberger and Herman Buhl.

Expeditions to Broad Peak start with a spectacular trek to base camp passing some of the most breath taking scenery in the Karakoram. The climb itself is more challenging than nearby Gasherbrum II. We climb the peak by the ‘classic’ West Ridge route that rises directly above base camp on the Godwin Austen glacier. The route follows a 30-45 degree snow slope with short rock sections. Three or Four camps will be placed and ropes will be fixed on the steeper sections of the climb. It is an excellent and exciting challenge for a mid-level as well as a senior level mountaineer.
