Overview

Broad Peak Expedition

Broad Peak originally named K3 is the 12th highest mountain on Earth located on the border of China-Pakistan. Broad Peak is part of the Gasherbrum massif and is about 5 miles from K2.  Originally named K3 right after the naming of K2 but on closer inspection by a later party, it was discovered that the summit was over 1 mile long, thus “Broad Peak”. Broad Peak is known locally as Faichan Kangri.

The first ascent of Broad Peak was made on June 9, 1957, by Fritz Wintersteller, Marcus Schmuck, Kurt Diemberger, and Hermann Buhl of an Austrian expedition led by Marcus Schmuck. A first attempt by the team was made on May 29 where Fritz Wintersteller and Kurt Diemberger reached the forepeak (8,030m). This was also accomplished without the aid of supplemental oxygen or high altitude porters and without base camp support.
