Goeschl summits Gasherbrum 1

Gerfield Goeschl and a number of other climbers have made the summit of Gasherbrum 1. He said that he was going to wait on the summit for a short time for some other climbers from his expedition to make it then head down. They had felt confident of success due to the large number of climbers heading to the summit all at once. It only took 7.5 hours to reach the summit from camp 3.

His next goal will be to climb K2 shortly. He plans to go up a new route near the Abruzzi Ridge, which will then join up with this main route at a later point.
