Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and Ralf Dujmovits explains K2 2011 at the ISPO-Winter (Munchen) 2012

7,300 views 2 years ago
Old friendships are important, so I had the pleasure to meet with Ralf Dujmovits who introduced me to his new wife Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner at the 2012 winter ISPO show in Munich. Ralf reached his last 8000m peak (Lhotse) in 2009 and became the first German on the 14 8000 and number 16 in the line:
1989 -- Nuptse NW ridge
1996 -- Nuptse Northpillar
1990 -- Dhaulagiri
1992 -- Mt Everest (supplemental oxygen)
1993 -- Baruntse
1994 -- K2
1995 -- Cho Oyu
1998 -- Cho Oyu
1996 -- Shisha Pangma
1997 -- Shisha Pangma
1999 -- Broad Peak
2000 -- Gasherbrum II
2001 -- Nanga Parbat
2009 -- Lhotse
Ralf is a strong and dedicated DAV Guide, and his record contains numerous successful expeditions, guiding clients to a 8000m summit. A true pillar in German High Altitude climbing, and a great man.

Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner is a Austrian climber, out of the "old school", extremely attached and sensitive to the notion of "The mountain". August 2011 Gerlinde and Ralf engaged a climb of the Japanese route of the North Pillar of K2. Here Gerlinde summited her final 8000m peak and became the first woman to complete the 8000m without supplemental oxygen:
1998 -- Cho Oyu,
2001 -- Makalu,
2002 -- Manaslu,
2003 -- Nanga Parbat,
2004 -- Annapurna I,
2004 -- Gasherbrum I,
2005 -- Shisha Pangma,
2005 -- Gasherbrum II,
2006 -- Kangchenjunga,
2007 -- Broad Peak,
2008 -- Dhaulagiri,
2009 -- Lhotse,
2010 -- Mount Everest, 2011 -- K2.

A full report of the K2 climb 2011, will be published in a 32 page report in NATIONAL GEOGRAFIC, translated and published worldwide, and due to appear in April 2012. Show less
