Following the German Route on what is also one of the greatest near vertical drops on the face of the earth, the four women climbed their way up slowly but surely, bracing the raging wind speeds and plummeting temperatures.
Speaking to the reporters Sook Kim said, “We used the German route, the most challenging, to reach the summit”.
“We are planning to send some clothes, shoes and other relief items to Pakistani poor people once a year. We hope that our project continue for a long time,” Ms Kim said.
The Trango Towers group has seen some of the most difficult and significant climbs ever accomplished, due to the combination of altitude, total height of the routes, and the steepness of the rock. All of the routes are highly technical climbs.
Great Trango was first climbed in 1977 by Galen Rowell, John Roskelley, Kim Schmitz, Jim Morrissey and Dennis Hennek by a route which started from the west side (Trango Glacier).
