Gasherbrum I is the highest peak in the mountain group of the same name and the eleventh highest mountain of the world. Initially registered by the British as K5 (Karakoram 5), the local Balti name later prevailed, which can be translated as “beautiful mountain”. Its remote location earned it the nickname “Hidden Peak”. After the first ascent in 1958, Peter Habeler and Reinhold Messner became the first to ascent an eight-thousander in pure alpine style on Gasherbrum I in 1975 without additional bottled oxygen.
