Four separate expeditions hope to complete the first winter ascent of Nanga Parbat, one of only two 8,000-meter peaks that has not yet been climbed in the coldest season. Sixteen teams have previously attempted 8,125-meter (26,660-foot) Nanga Parbat in winter, including several of the climbers trying again this season.
