Visser, a Dutch, and his party surveyed Gasherbrum glacier. It was, however, in 1936 that a strong French expedition led by H. de Segogne tried its luck on Gasherbrum-I. The party went up to 6,797m where camp-V was established. Subsequently the party located a place for camp-VI at 7,010m. it was however, due to a continuous storm and bad weather that the party was forced to abandon its plan. It was however, an American expedition of Nick Clinch, which in 1958 climbed Gasherbrum-I peak. Schoening and Kaufman went to its top. Nick was the first prison who crossed Masherbum La in 1974, much to the surprise of the villagers of Hushe, who thought their valley impregnable from the north. They remembered Clinch and gave him a warm welcome.
