Stammberger, a noted ski mountaineer, had several expeditions to the Himalaya and was editor of Climbing magazine. In 1964 he was a member of a small five-person team which attempted Cho Oyu. Stammberger claimed a successful ascent but this is in dispute. He did, however, make a ski descent from 24,000’. Tragically, two members died while trying to descend and Stammberger was blamed for their deaths. He died during a solo attempt on Tirich Mir in 1975. Scarce. In German, no English translation.
