The conquest of the Gasherbrum IV, one of the most difficult mountains of the Karakorum, took place on 6 August 1958 thanks to the second national expedition of the Italian Alpine Club led by Riccardo Cassin. It cost three months of hard work, risks and adversity: a choral effort that brought Walter Bonatti and Carlo Mauri to the top after unspeakable efforts. Technical difficulties are around the fifth degree; the altitude, the frost and the storm make progression exasperating. The Gasherbrum IV (7925 meters) even today, has only registered a handful of ascents.
