Annapurna IV. Like last year, Annapurna IV was successfully climbed by a group organized by the German Alpine Club (DAV) on a commercial basis. We climbed the north face and northwest ridge and fixed some 4000 feet of rope, all of which we removed. Camps I, II, III and IV were placed at 14,100, 16,400, 20,000 and 22,000 feet on April 9, 10, 14 and 23 respectively. On April 25 Achim Musiol, Sherpas Nga Temba and Ang Dorjee and I as guide reached the summit (7525 meters, 24,688 feet).
