“Rising into the twilight thou white and shining peak draw me away from this turmoil and tell me you’re not meek” Liver Khan

Hidden Peak 8,080 m as translated by the natives means “Shining Wall”. Among the six Gasherburm Peaks in the Karakoram range Gasherbrum I is the highest. The Americans were the first to reach its the Autumn of 1958. It was first climbed by A. Kaufman and P. Schoening in 1958. Although the French had made an attempt as early as 1956, Hidden Peak was also the first eight thousand meter peak to be climbed in Alpine style.
