Season’s end preliminary 2009 Karakoram climbing report

Here goes a preliminary Karakoram summer 2009 8000+ summits report compiled by ExWeb’s contributor Brazilian writer and chronicler Rodrigo Granzotto Peron for AdventureStats.

Note the very few summits on G2 and K2, and zero summits on Broad Peak. Fewer climbers, bad climbing conditions – but also an improved watch of true summits all contributed to the resulting 35 summits this season, compared to 93 in 2008.

Fatalities

On only 35 summits, we lost 5 mountaineers on the Karakoram 8000ers.

K2 claimed Italian Michele Fait who slipped while skiing down the Cesen route. Korean star climber Miss Go fell to her death on Nanga Parbat at a section where the fixed rope had been removed. Austrian Wolfgang Köblinger perished on descent high up on Nanga Parbat’s normal route.

Italian Cristina Castagna slipped and fell into a crevasse on descent from Broad Peak camp 4. Spanish mountaineer Luis M. Barbero was last seen near the summit of Gasherbrum II and was reported lost some days later by his team mates down in BC.
