First Ascent of Ogre III

Thomas Huber, Iwan Wolf and Urs Stocker have just made the first ascent of Ogre III (6800m), the west summit of Ogre II in Pakistan. They had planned to climb the South Pillar of Ogre (7285m), which Thomas had attempted unsuccessfully with his brother Alex in 1999, but an American expedition was already on the wall. We´ll post some information about the route when we get some. See our news report on June 25th detailing a live link with the expedition via Berghaus´s website.
