The ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1970 marked the start of the race himalayística Reinhold Messner. But it was both a controversial issue, surrounded by a halo of mystery: Reinhold's younger brother, Günther, died in the "Mountain of Destiny German. " Reinhold survives, but suffers severe frostbite after having made ​​the first ascent of the Rupal-side of their 4,500-meter-high cliff known as the largest on Earth, and the first crossing of the coveted eight thousand from south to north.
