CLIMBING HISTRY
The peaks have been climbed several times in the past.The Trango Great was first climbed in 1977 by Galen Rowell, John Roskelley, Kim Schmitz, Jim Morrissey and Dennis Hennek by a route which started from the west side (Trango Glacier). The east face of the Great Trango is the world’s tallest vertical face and was first climbed in 1984 by the Norwegians Hans Christian Doseth and Finn Dæhli, both died on the descent. The first successful climbed from this face was done in 1992 by Xaver Bongard and John Middendorf, Trango The Nameless Tower was first climbed in 1976 by British climber Joe Brown, Mo Anthoine, Martin Boysen, and Malcolm Howells. There are almost eight routes to the summit and one of the famous route is known as Eternal Flame. The West summit of the Great Trango and Trango Pulpit were climbed in 1999 by two separate teams, one American and one Russian. Some recent ascents on the Great Trango have been done by using some longer routes. Josh Wharton and Kelly Cordes completed a new, very long (2,256 meter/7,400 ft) route on the Southwest Ridge in 2004. Although the climb was not very technical from this route but notable thing is that it was done with lightweight and fast style. In 2005 two Slovak climbers Gabo Cmarik and Jozef Kopold climbed with a new route, in 7 days, which they named Assalam Alaikum, on the south face of Great Trango. This climb was also used lightweight style as similar to that of Wharton and Cordes. In the same year Samuel Johnson, Jonathon Clearwater and Jeremy Frimer made the first climb of the southwest ridge of the Trango II. In mid August of 2009, Alexander and Thomas Huber climbed Eternal Flame.
