Asia, Nepal, Dhaulagiri II Attempt

Dhaulagiri II Attempt. A four-man Japanese expedition led by Shuichi Torii had hoped to climb the east ridge of Dhaulagiri II. They established three high camps. Frequent snowfall, strong winds and an exhausted food supply defeated them and they gave up on October 21. That day Torii, Chiaki Inami, Kimio Narusaki and sirdar Ang Kami Sherpa reached their high point, 7200 meters on the east ridge after having traversed just beneath the summit of the “Snow Peak” to the east of Dhaulagiri II.
