Besthike actually links to this page which is a complete rundown of an independent expedition by two brothers, Franz and Manfred Pfluegl, who started planning their climb two years ago, and through a lot of determination and perseverance, saw it through to the end, finally summiting on Dec. 27, 2006. The page has tons of information on their preparation and the climb itself, and should offer some great insights into what goes into an expedition like this one.
Thanks for the tip on this one Rick, and welcome back!
