Carlos Pauner’s Aragon Broad Peak + GII expedition
After climbing Dhaulagiri in spring, Spaniard Carlos Pauner will attempt Broad Peak and GII this summer along with some climbing friends. Carlos has previously reached BP’s fore-summit. Last year, he hoped to summit both Gasherbrums, but bad weather conditions only allowed him one: GI (Hidden Peak). In 2006 he hopes to finish the job, and thus complete all Pakistan 8000+ meters summits in his 14 8000er quest.
