Fast And Furious, new route Trip One Karakorum 2005
Fabio Salini, Ezio Marlier and Hervè Barmasse of the Up project expedition, currently climbing in the Chogolisa Glacier area (Baltoro – Pakistan), climbs Fast And Furious.
First new route on a hitherto unclimbed face for the Up project expedition, currently climbing in the Chogolisa Glacier area (Baltoro Pakistan). The Italians Fabio Salini, Ezio Marlier and HervÃ¨ Barmasse climbed the 700m "Fast And Furious", grading it VÂ°, ice 4Â° and M6 mixed. The route touches the finishing crest at about 5500m but the trio backed off short of the summit due to worsening weather.
The trio, safely back in base camp, are already planning a new assault, while teammates Brenna and company are currently working on a route up the pillar of Chogolisa.
