Annapurna IV. We climbed the standard northwest ridge of Annapurna IV (7525 meters, 24,688 feet), using some 3000 feet of fixed rope. Our expedition was organized by the German Alpine Club Mountain and Ski School with twelve members and two guides. The summit was reached on October 23 by Ang Pasang, Nga Temba, Quirin Oellinger and Fritz Gertsch and on October 26 by Adolf Welsch, Josef Ressle and me.
