An Austrian team comprising four mountaineers first summited Broad Peak in 1957. The team took advantage of the fixed climbing lines arrangement put in place by a German expedition group that failed to summit the peak in 1954. And what’s astonishing is that the Austrian team summited the peak without using oxygen.
