Karakoram : Link Sar First Ascent Movie

Standing at 7041 Metres, Link Sar is said to be the last great unclimbed mountain of the Karakoram range in Pakistan. The Mountain has seen 9 failed attempts since 1970 : Steve Swenson first attempted Link Sar in 2001 with an American team, and then again, after a number of failed permit attempts, in 2017 with Chris Wright and Graham Zimmerman. In 2019 the team returned with the addition of Mark Richey for one more attempt on the unscaled peak. The 2019 successful ascent took 8 days way up and back, and was marked by a 36-hour storm, while Zimmerman took a 35m fall after being swept away by an avalanche just below the summit. This bold ascent is awarded by the Piolet d’Or 2020.
