Gasherbrum II North Face

Gasherbrum II North Face, Pakistan, 24 November 2007

by Karl Unterkircher. 17-minute. The video describes the 2007 Italian expedition with climbers Karl Unterkircher, Daniele Bernasconi and Michele Compagnoni to attempt to be the first to climb the North Face of Gasherbrum II from the Chinese side.

Story

The video starts with their trek to Base Camp through wild desert-like country with camels carrying the equipment and also used to carry the people across raging rivers. After setting up base camp, the climb starts on a large rock pillar before moving to the steep snow. Each of the climbers is interviewed.

After resting at base camp, the three climbers set off for the summit. We clearly see their exposure as they climb up very steep snowy slopes. Up and up they go until we see the summit ridge. Karl films Daniele as he climbs the last few steps to the summit. Karl Unterkircher and Daniele Bernasconi reached the Gasherbrum II summit on July 20, 2007. The two climbers film the panoramic view from the summit - beautiful.

The filming is very good and is very professional. The pace is fairly fast, but each part of the trek and climb is shown in a reasonable amount of detail.
