Gasherbrum II is located in the Karakoram is the 13th highest mountain in the world is located in the Gasherbrum group mountain region of Pakistan. Many mountaineers looking at a future attempt of K 2, Everest or other mountain objectives on Gasherbrum II as a suitable first-time 8,000 meter peak.
Our philosophy is to approach all mountains with great care, recognizing the hazards involved in climbing high-altitude glaciated peaks. Gasherbrum II is one of the highest mountains in the world, posing all the risks that come with such an impressive peak. That being said, the normal route/ SW on the mountain is accessible due to less objective hazard. There is a substantial icefall to negotiate on the way to camp one and weather can be very challenging. We plan to utilize an experienced staff, top-notch safety and mountain equipment, fixed rope in exposed or otherwise dangerous sections of the route, and slow conservative acclimatization to minimize our risk.
Gasherbrum-II (8035m) is one of the absorbing peaks among the Karakorum . It is an impressive, ideal peak to start high mountain climbing and the best trek in the world. Although climb is not as difficult as Hidden Peak, but still considered its climbing provides a perfect mountaineering experience. G-II stands on the North West of Baltoro Glacier in the majestic neighborhood of K-2, the second highest peak in the world.
The snow-face of the South-West Ridge presents difficulties on ice and snow mixed faces, once you reach above the plateau after negotiating the heavily crevassed Gasherbrum Glacier. It has a steep way up at some sections. Continue climbing on a series of ridges and reach a platform where C II is generally settled up. From here you climb a couple of ice pitches and then up the face going steeper before you reach the site of CIII. After three pitches from there it is a sloping way across the route from where a traverse leads to the base of the summit on the East Ridge. The climb from there is wide open with glorious surroundings but there is a few steep sections before you reach the narrow summit ridge.
In 1956, the Austrian Karakorum Expedition members Firtz Moravec, Josef Larch and Hans Willenpart made the summit successfully of the South Face (Normal route). In 1984, Reinhold Messner made the historic attempt by continuously traversing both Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum II with his companion Has Kammerlander.
