Ama Dablam Attempt. Our expedition was composed of Bernard Dufour, Philippe Gérard, Dr. Eric Lasserre, Guy Peters, Gérard Pétrignet, Jean Raphoz, Gérard Vincent and me as leader. Unfortunately heavy snow on the southeast ridge forced us to give up at Camp II, still some 2800 feet below the summit. The objective dangers were too great. We had fixed some 5000 feet of rope.
