The Shared Summits expedition members make their attempt on Nanga Parbat. Follow their ascent as they battle inclement weather and challenging conditions. Watch the previous parts of the expedition in Nanga Parbat: Part I, and Nanga Parbat: Part II.
Earlier this season, Nanga Parbat was the scene of tragedy for another expedition—Italian mountaineer Karl Unterkircher died on the peak, and his companions were stranded for ten days before being rescued from Nanga Parbat. Read more about the tragedy in the July 24, 2008 NewsWire.
