 Hermann Buhl

 

Hermann Buhl (September 21, 1924 - June 27, 1957) is considered one of the best post-war Austrian climbers. His accomplishments include:

  • 1953 First ascent of Nanga Parbat 8,125 metres (26,658 ft.)
  • 1957 First ascent of Broad Peak 8,047 metres (26,400 ft.)

Just a few weeks after the success on Broad Peak, Buhl and Kurt Diemberger attempted nearby Chogolisa peak (7,654 metres). Buhl died when he fell through a cornice on the SE ridge near the summit of Chogolisa. His body has never been found. Interview recorded in 1957.
