Gasherbrum is a remote group of high peaks in the Karakoram, located at the northeast end of the 36-mile Baltoro. Gasherbrum-I is one to the “least popular” of the 8000-meter peaks. It still has less than 200 ascents and is in the tenth spot on the ascent-list for the 8000-meter peaks. It is also one of the peaks with the least deaths, but this probably has to do with the fact that only really experienced mountaineers try a peak as difficult at Gasherbrum-I. The first ascent (1958) was made via Spur Peak and then via the long southeast ridge to the summit.
