Asia, Pakistan, Nanga Parbat Attempt, Diamir Face

Nanga Parbat Attempt, Diamir Face. Dr. Kurt Schoisswohl, Dr. Michael Grüner, Robert Troier, Imgard Renzler and I as leader hoped to climb Nanga Parbat by the normal route on the Diamir Face. We reached Camp III. We then started a summit attempt on August 6, which was interrupted between Camps I and II because of landslides caused by an earthquake. All recent expeditions to the Diamir valley have had serious porter problems. As an example, our cook had a threat made on his life if he did not immediately leave our camp.
