Angelus. The neighboring peak to K2, the Angelus (6885 meters, 22,589 feet), was climbed for the first time by Michel Afanassieff and the Swiss priest Claude Stucki on August 9. From their 16,400-foot Base Camp, they climbed to the base of the southwest face, 1000 feet higher. This led them to the south- southwest ridge, which they followed to the top. They bivouacked at 19,700 feet on the descent.
