Daniele Nardi to solo Mummery Rib.
Winter 2012/13, Italian climber Daniele Nardi had two unsuccessful attempts on Nanga Parbat’s Mummery Rib. ”It’s because it spared my life, it let me taste its violence and its honey, the Queen of the Mountains, the killer mountain. How much did I learn? A lot more than I can digest at the moment,” said Nardi.
The terrorist attack on the Diamir Base Camp in summer 2013 threatened access to that side of the mountain. However, the Diamir Base Camp is open to climbers. “My focus will always remain on the spur and the direct line to the summit of Nanga Parbat in winter,” said Nardi of his planned winter attempt.

German climber Ralf Dujmovits has already reached the Diamir Base Camp, he is planning a solo of the Diamir Face.
