Carlos Bühler is one of the most accomplished mountain climbers in the World. His climbing career spans thirty years with major ascents on five continents. He draws from experience gained on thirty-four expeditions to Alaska, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Uganda, Pakistan, Nepal, China, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Tibet. In 1983, he climbed to the summit of Mount Everest with the American team that made the first ascent of the Kangshung (East) face from Tibet. It was Everest’s last unclimbed face and its ascent established the mountain’s most technically demanding route. Their climb has never been repeated.
