Broad Peak 8047m Kick-off Meeting in Salzburg, Austria
Kick-off Meeting at Fritz Wintersteller´s home in Salzburg
Marcus Schmuck and Fritz Wintersteller meet with their sons in Salzburg to kick-off the making of the offical Internet site of the Austrian OEAV Karakoram expedition 1957.
The OEAV Section Salzburg and the Edelweiss Club Salzburg are the first sponsors. As I read the book "Broad Peak" by Richard Sale, the idea to make an Internet site came to my mind, says Fritz W. Wintersteller, the son of Fritz. Reinhold Schmuck is on board and started immediatly to work on all his contacts in the mountaineering world.
The First ascent of Broad Peak 8047m in 1957 by the Austrian OEAV Karakoram Expedition with Hermann Buhl, Kurt Diemberger, Marcus Schmuck and Fritz Wintersteller deserves a place in the history of mountaineering.
This Internet platform will inform the public about the expedition and the team members with authentic pictures, climbing diaries, and historical documents. An overview over the history of all later ascents will be provided as well. We will create a multi-lingual Internet platform of international reputation, accredited by the Government of Pakistan, the OEAV, the Edelweiss Club Salzburg, and National and International Mountaineering Organisations. We will cooperate with the National and International Press and Media.
