No Summit on the Rupal Face of Nanga Parbat

After a long silence, news finally came from the Rupal side of Nanga Parbat.

David Goettler, Tiphaine Duperier, and Boris Langenstein had launched a single summit push with no oxygen or external support up the Schell route on the Rupal Face. As Goettler sees it, climbing in pure alpine style is worth more than reaching a summit.

In the end, the summit eluded them. We don’t have details, but Goettler and the French skiers will post soon.
