Marcus Schmuck on the summit of
Broad Peak 8047m on June 9, 1957 at 5:05pm
with K2 in the background. Photo by Fritz Wintersteller. Marcus and Fritz reach the
summit after more than 13 hours of trail breaking from camp III. Kurt Diemberger and
Hermann Buhl reach the summit later on the same day. The Broad Peak First Ascent was
without oxigen masks, without high altitude porters, and without base camp support.
