FIRST ASCENT – KUNYANG CHHISH EAST
Synopsis: Hansjörg Auer, Matthias Auer and Simon Anthamatten set off for a great goal: the Kunyang Chish East. With its 7.400 metre this summit belongs to the highest still untouched mountains on earth. The challenge is not only physical. They do not know what will be awaiting them in the higher walls, except altitude and cold. Bivouacs on isolated snow mushrooms or in crevasses, in order to be protected against the masses of the falling new snow, constitute a big mental challenge. The way to the summit requires a high capacity for suffering in all areas.
