Cesen/Lindic Gasherbrum IV Northwest Ridge Debrief

It was the coolest Karakoram climb yet this season: Slovenian Alpine Association sent word the debrief is in.

(Newsdesk/SAA) Slovenian alpine climbers Ales Cesen and Luka Lindic accomplished two ascents in the Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan in July. To acclimatise, they climbed Broad Peak (8047 m) on 12 July 2016, being the only climbers to do so this year.

On 26 July during their attempt to climb the Gasherbrum IV, they climbed its North Summit (7900 m) along the demanding Northwest Ridge, which is only the fourth ascent along this highly technical route.
