Asia, Nepal, Annapurna South Attempt

Annapurna South Attempt. A French expedition led by Patrick Jacquenot failed to climb Annapurna South by the east ridge. Despite eleven members and two Sherpas above Base Camp, they reached only 21,325 feet on October 21 and abandoned the climb because of heavy snowfall which brought avalanche danger. They had no time to wait for better weather.
