Asia, Pakistan, Nanga Parbat, Diamir Face

Nanga Parbat, Diamir Face. Our expedition was made up of Dr. Mariano Arrazola, Eduardo Martínez de Pisón, Jorge Palacios, Angel Sánchez, Pedro Manuel Nicolás and me as leader. We climbed the Diamir Face. We established Base Camp and Camps I, II and III at 4200,4800, 6100 and 7200 meters on July 8, 17, 19 and August 10. We placed Camp I lower than the usual site because of the huge quantity of garbage at the latter. From Camps I to II there was much ice and above much deep snow with avalanche danger on the final cone. The summit was reached on August 11 by Nicolás and me at five P.M. Martínez de Pisón made a complete circling of the mountain to carry out his geomorphological studies.
