Gasherbrum IV, northwest ridge to north summit. The Spanish team of Alberto Iñurrategi, Ferrári Latorre, José Carlos Tamayo, Juan Vallejo, and Miguel Zabalza climbed the northwest ridge of 7,925m Gasherbrum IV (Child-Hargis-Macartney-Snape, 1986), reaching the northern summit, but not the highest point, on August 1. During the descent, Latorre was injured by a falling rock and had to be evacuated from base camp.
