    This is the face attempted by an Italian expedition in summer 2008 where the world-class alpinist Karl Unterkircher fell through a crevasse and perished. Videos of their expedition can be found here:



    This face was attempted by several German expeditions from their traditional camp-ground Marchen Weiss (Fairy Meadows)
