Asia, Pakistan, Nanga Parbat, Diamir Face

Nanga Parbat, Diamir Face. An expedition from Bergamo led by Augusto Zanotti made the third ascent of the Kinshofer route on the Diamir Face of Nanga Parbat. They were three weeks on the mountain and established four camps. They found ladders and ropes in place in the first part. In good weather but with strong winds, on August 19 at one P.M. L. Rota, B. Scanabessi and A. Fassi reached the top. A. Azzoni and A. Zanchi had to give up about 500 feet from the top that same day because of frostbite.
