Here goes the final season's report courtesy of ExWeb's Karrar Haidri and Mr. Saad Tariq Siddiqi, Secretary of Alpine Club Pakistan.

91 expedition applications

This year 91 expedition applications were filed for climbing permits in Pakistan. 83 were granted including 14 double-headers, one triple-header and one permit to climb 4 peaks. As such overall 102 attempts were made by 799 members of 83 expeditions, to climb 22 peaks, out of which 201 climbers including 13 from Pakistan, were successful

2 expeditions were denied permits to climb peaks situated close to the Siachen Glacier war zone. 6 expeditions withdrew their applications.

Broad Peak (8047 m) Golden Jubilee

Broad Peak was first climbed on June 9, 1957 by four Austrian climbers. To commemorate the 50 year anniversary, a 26 member Austrian party led by Gerfried Göschl arrived in Pakistan on June 18, 2007. 8 climbers of the expedition including the leader reached the summit on July 20 and July 31.

Overall 25 expeditions tried their luck on Broad Peak this year, out of which 19 put 77 members (including 6 Pakistani climbers) on the summit. Only 6 expeditions were un-successful.

Choghori K2 (8611m)

Unlike last year, 2007 was a successful year on K2. 130 climbers of 16 expeditions tried to summit and 29 (from 8 expeditions) were successful. A Russian Expedition led by Nickolay Totmjanin created a new route on the West Wall. 11 of the expedition members including the leader successfully climbed K2 through this new route on August 21 and 22, 2007. On their return from the mountains they were greeted by the Prime Minister of Pakistan and later in the evening were awarded summit certificates by Mr. Saad Tariq Siddiqi, the Secretary of the Alpine Club of Pakistan.

Gasherbrum II (8035 m)

2007 was a bad climbing year for GII. 14 Expeditions were granted permit to climb the peak, out of which only one was successful in putting its 4 members on the summit. All remaining 13 expeditions returned without success after a bad avalanche took the lives of two climbers. (Ed note: Karl Unterkircher and Daniele Bernasconi climbed the North Face from the Chinese side.)

Gasherbrum I (8068 m)

2007 was a successful climbing year for GI. 96 members of 10 expeditions tried to summit the peak; 27 climbers (including 3 Pakistani climbers) of 6 expeditions made it. 4 expeditions were unsuccessful. The Chinese Olympic torch team lead by Sam Drug was among the summiteers. (Ed note: The climbers claim that G1 finished their 14, 8000ers quest - however the climbers' Broad Peak main summit is controversial, as the team's summit pictures show the rocky fore-summit.)

Nanga Parbat (8125 m)

2007 was an unusually successful year on Nanga Parbat. All 5 expeditions were successful in putting 17 out of 32 climbers on Nanga Parbat's top without any casualties.
