Australian expedition. Summitted with Zac
Zaharias and Matt Rogerson: First Australian ascent; 7
August 1997 - Broad Peak solo via west face.
Australian/British expedition (2 man expedition) He first
attempted the south ridge (unclimbed) with Rick Allen,
where they reached about 7100 meters. it was great
climbing but they were stopped by a difficult rock
buttress. Then they had 10 days of storms so
Rick went home and Andrew went to the west face.
The solo was a true solo as no one else was on the
mountain at all and all the fixed ropes were buried by
10 days of storms. The deep snow made for very slow
going and Andrew had to bivouac on the summit ridge
around 8000 meters after the summit. It was a 2.5 day
round trip, base camp to base camp.
- Nanga Parbat, He summitted on 21 July via the
Kinshoeffer route. It was again the first Australian
ascent. He had to bivouac around 7500 meters after the
summit again, "as I couldn't find the tent."
