ETH Wasserbau, Hydrologie und Glaziologie The Crystal Ship: First ascent of Pumari Chhish East

In June 2022, doctoral student Christophe Ogier (VAW glaciology, ETH Zurich) along with two friends travelled to the remote Hispar glacier in Pakistan to attempt the first ascent of the Pumari Chhish East (6850m). After a long wait due to bad weather, they finally found a good weather window which allowed them to fulfill their dream. They succeeded through a new route that they called The Crystal Ship (M7, 6b, A2, 1600m), after five days on the wall. This accomplishment has already been recognized worldwide by the climbing community as one of the best ascent of the year. 
The event will include a talk by Christophe Ogier in English, as well as the original film made during the expedition (in French with English subtitles).
