Andrzej Bargiel climbed the 6,178-metre-high (20,269 ft) Yawash Sar II mountain (in Pakistan) and then skied off the peak. No one in history has done such a trick before.
Bargiel became the first man to leave traces of not only boots but also skis on the top. Everything went according to plan. The Pole left the camp around 4 a.m. local time and went on a 10-kilometer climb. After seven hours, he managed to climb to the top of a previously unconquered mountain, and then ski down it. The Pole has already reached the camp safely.
The purpose of the KARAKORAM SKI EXPEDITION expedition was to ascend two six-thousanders and ski down them. Yawash Sar II was a success, now Bargiel will take on Laila Peak (6,096 m [20,000 ft] above sea level) located in the Hushe Valley, with an exceptionally characteristic shape, considered one of the most beautiful peaks in the world.
