14 Gasherbrum IV Summit Peaks Out Of Clouds At Sunset From Goro II  [20 of 40]


The West Face of Gasherbrum IV shines at sunset from Goro II. The first ascent of Gasherbrum IV was made via the northeast ridge on August 6, 1958 by famed Italian mountaineer Walter Bonatti and Carlo Mauri on a strong Italian team led by legendary climber Riccardo Cassin. A desperate struggle between the mountain and ourselves, but we were all winners, and at 12.30 exactly the little pennants of Italy, Pakistan and the C.A.I. fluttered on the Summit itself. Fluttered no, blew out in the howling gale. - Karakoram: The Ascent Of Gasherbrum IV by Fosco Maraini.
