Is it true that Gunther’s remains were found at Nanga Parbat, and that his position verifies Reinhold Messner’s description of what happened? If so, where can one find the full story? I’m glad for R. Messner that he was finally vindicated after people were so harsh toward him. It was a terrible loss for him – beyond devastating – and I was appalled that anyone would give him a hard time after such a terrible tragedy. People can be so unreasonably cruel!
