Annapurna South Expedition

Trip Details
  • Duration: 30 Days
  • Destination: Nepal
  • Grade: Moderate

First made to 4300m along from Chomrong village to top, Then rested 2days, started climb from Chomrong to base camp and At 6000m found ropes of Americans in 1988, middle section of Russian route was same as American route, at 3806m(took 2 days to reach ABC from Chomrong) and started to climb ABC and South Ridge 200m below small summit at 5000m(4941m on map of German pub) and next day lower biv at 4700m on a ridge with many up & down sections. Ridge almost all ice with some snow; rock only 2 pitches where found American rope. Most difficult section was between 6000m (to 6500m on knife ridge sometimes hard ice and sometimes strong wind.

This climb technically not so difficult climb but harder work: greater difference in altitude from Chomrong. Difficult to find route amongst rock towers, small gullies, etc & difficult knife ridge. Had to carry 2 weeks provisions so very heavy loads. Until reached 6000m very clear but cold. Carried 4 ropes of 45m length more permanently a reached summit: nice route straight line (only 300m at most off of ridge). At 7000m left descending rope with ice screw and others will find this Summit is great plateau.
