Gasherbrum III is situated between Gasherbrum II and IV and has a height of 7,952m/26,089ft. It was the highest unclimbed peak upto 1974, before a Polish women's expedition, under the leadership of Mrs. Wanda Rutkiewics, climbed it on the 11th August, 1975. The leader, along with Alison Chadwick, Janusz Onyszkiewicz and K. Zdzitowiecki, reached the top. The party claims that it was an all women's expedition. It had, however, quite a few men accompanying them for moral support. The women did the real job and it was they who touched the summit.
