Asia, Nepal, Ama Dablam, Southwest Ridge

Ama Dablam, Southwest Ridge. An international expedition was led by Renato Moro with the help of two guides Franco Girodo and me, who fixed rope on the route. In October the first climbers could not succeed because of very bad weather. Fortunately a second group, in late October and November, was successful, the summit being reached by 14 climbers: on October 30, the Italian guides Mauro Bernardi, Stefan Kehrer and Franz Stuflesser; on October 31, a group of five climbers led by Austrian Wolfgang Nairz; on May 2 Erik Decamp, André Levêque and American Peter Athens; on November 3, Italian guides Hermann Comploy and Vinzenz Runggaldier; and on November 4 Canadian Roger Marshall.
