Broad Peak

Broad Peak is a Himalayan mountain on the border of Pakistan and China, the 12th highest mountain in the world at 8,047 metres above sea level. It was first ascended in June 1957 by Fritz Wintersteller, Marcus Schmuck, Kurt Diemberger, Hermann Buhl of an Austrian expedition. Broad Peak is part of the Gasherbrum massif in Baltistan on the border of China, it is located in the Karakoram mountain range about 8 kilometres from K2. It has a summit over 1.5 kilometres long, thus "Broad Peak". The mountain has five summits: Broad Peak, Rocky Summit, Broad Peak Central, Broad Peak North, Kharut Kangri; the literal translation of "Broad Peak" to Falchan Kangri is not used among the Balti people. The English name was introduced in 1892 by the British explorer Martin Conway, in reference to the named Breithorn in the Alps; the first ascent of Broad Peak was made between June 8 and 9, 1957 by Fritz Wintersteller, Marcus Schmuck, Kurt Diemberger, Hermann Buhl of an Austrian expedition led by Marcus Schmuck.

A first attempt by the team was made on May 29 where Fritz Wintersteller and Kurt Diemberger reached the forepeak. This was accomplished without the aid of supplemental oxygen, high altitude porters or base camp support. In July 2007 an Austrian mountaineering team climbed Broad Peak and retrieved the corpse of Markus Kronthaler, who had died on the mountain one year before, from over 8,000 metres. In 2008 Frenchwoman Élisabeth Revol made a solo ascent of Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum II within 16 days and without the aid of oxygen as her climbing partner Antoine Girard had fallen ill. In the winter and summer of 2009 there were no summits. There was one winter expedition by a Polish-Canadian team. In the summer there was Cristina Castagna. In summer 2012, five members of "Koroška 8000" - Slovenian team summitted the mountain, they tracked the way in deep snow from Camp 4 to the summit and opened the summit to seven more climbers from other expeditions.

Broad Peak was the twelfth Eight-thousander summited in wintertime and the tenth Eight-thousander first summitted in winter by Polish climbers. During the descent, Maciej Berbeka and Tomasz Kowalski did not reach Camp 4 and were pronounced missing.

On March 8 both climbers were declared dead and the expedition was ended. In July 2013, a group of five Iranian climbers attempted to ascend through a new route from the southwestern face. Three of them — Aidin Bozorgi, Pouya Keivan, Mojtaba Jarahi — ascended but during descent all three of them were lost and declared dead.
