Broad Peak first winter ascent video

09.10.2013 by Planetmountain

The video - documentary by Marcin Powalski about the historic first winter ascent of Broad Peak, carried out in March 2013 by a Polish expedition led by Krzysztof Wielicki during which Maciej Berbeka and Tomasz Kowalski lost their lives.

"Expeditions divide into successful and happy ones, and that was a successful expedition, because we reached the summit. But happy expeditions are those when everyone returns." This is how Krzysztof Wielicki begins this documentary that retraces the historic and dramatic first winter ascent of Broad Peak, when Maciej Berbeka, Adam Bielecki, Tomasz Kowalski and Artur Malek reached the summit on 5 March 2013. A historic success. But above all a drama an immense suffering for the loss of Maciej Berbeka and Tomasz Kowalski who never returned from the mountain.
