(Eurac Research) Renowned mountaineers Simone Moro and Tamara Lunger announce their next expedition. In mid-December they will attempt the ascent to the summit of Gasherbrum I and the traverse to Gasherbrum II — 2 mountains above the eight thousand meter mark that form part of the Karakorum chain in the Himalayas — a feat never before undertaken in the winter. Artificial acclimatisation will take place inside terraXcube, Eurac Research´s center for the simulation of extreme climates.
