Per­for­mance Gasher­brum V

Vertical (English) - - Summary - By Chi-young Ahn and Peter Jensen-Choi.

There are seven Gasher­brum. Lo­cated at the far end of Bal­toro, they form a horse­shoe around the Abruzzi Glacier. Their name means “beau­ti­ful moun­tain”. The Gasher­brum V, like its broth­ers, is well named. It re­mained un­climbed un­til last year. Chi-young Ahn and Nak-jong Seong brought this cov­eted sta­tus to an end, af­ter the ad­ven­tur­ous first as­cent of this 7,147 me­ters-high moun­tain.
