Asia, Pakistan, Gasherbrum I

Gasherbrum I. Austrian Willi Bauer was back in the Karakoram in 1989 from which he barely escaped in the disastrous 1986 tragedy on K2. He led a commercial group of 20 Austrians and Germans, including some climbers very experienced in the high mountains. Unfortunately, the extremely bad weather this season robbed the group of success.
