Hermann Buhl (September 21, 1924 – June 27, 1957) one of the best climbers of all time. He was innovative in applying alpine style to Himalayan climbing. Just a few weeks after the successful first ascent of Broad Peak Buhl and Kurt Diemberger made an attempt on nearby, unclimbed Chogolisa peak (7654 m) in alpine style. Buhl died when he fell through a cornice on the southeast ridge near the summit of Chogolisa. His body was never found.
