Gasherbrum III (7,952m) Expedition

Gasherbrum III is situated between Gasherbrum II and IV and has a height of 7,952m/26,089ft. It was the highest unclimbed peak up to 1974, before a polish ladies expedition, under the leadership of Mrs. Wanda Rutkiewics, climbed it on the 11th August, 1975. The leader, along with Alison Chadwick, Janusz Onyszkiewicz and K. Zdzitowiecki, reached the top. The party claims that it was an all ladies expedition. It had however, quite a few men probably to give moral support to the ladies, if and when needed, during the climb.
