Gasherbrum III (7952m)



Gasherbrum III (7952m) is a summit in the Gasherbrum massif of the Baltoro Muztagh, a subrange of the Karakoram on the border between the Northern Areas of Pakistan and Xinjiang, China, in the region of Baltistan. It is situated between Gasherbrum II and IV.

Gasherbrum III fails to meet a 500-meter topographic prominence cutoff to be an independent mountain; hence it can be considered a subpeak of Gasherbrum II.

Gasherbrum III was one of the highest unclimbed summits in the world up to its first ascent in 1975, by Wanda Rutkiewicz, Alison Chadwick-Onyszkiewicz, Janusz Onyszkiewicz and Krzysztof Zdzitowiecki, members of a Polish expedition.
