Broad Peak Expedition(8051)
We have gained a reputation for success on 8000m peaks; much is to do with the strength of support we put in place. On Broad Peak and K2 we add considerable strength to our team by bringing in the support of our best Nepali Sherpa’s to work alongside our team of Pakistani high altitude porters.
Perhaps you have no ambition to climb K2. Broad Peak is attainable by the less technically skilled mountaineer who wants to climb in the shadow of K2, which is directly opposite.
The first westerner who saw the peak was probably Lieutenant T.G. Montgomerie. He was surveying the mountains in the area and in 1856 he spotted some extraordinary peaks, which he gave temporary names. K for Karakoram + a number for the peak. K1, K2, K3 etc. Montgomerie later found out K1had a local name; Masherbrum. K2, still goes under that name, even if some have proposed to re-name it Qogori, a name used by some local people. K3, the third peak to be measured by Montgomerie didn’t have a local name.
