Spanish Brothers Set for Pakistan’s ‘Eternal Flame’

via www.k2climb.net

Last year, the Basque climbers Iker and Eneko Pou changed their mind only days before departing for Pakistan, where they planned to free climb ‘Eternal Flame’ on the Trango Towers: This year though – it’s a go. The brothers will go to Trango Towers in July, to free-climb Eternal Flame, on the Nameless Tower. The Eternal Flame route has only been climbed on three occasions, first by a German team in 1989, then by a Madrilenian team in 2000 and in 2003 by Juan Vallejo, although none of them made a free climb ascent.
