Asia, China, Anyemaqen

Anyemaqen. After leaving Italy on June 23, we got to Base Camp at 4300 meters on July 6. Following the north-northeast spur, on July 13 Ermanno Pollet, Rolando Menardi, Filippo Sala and Attilio Bianchetti reached the summit. The beginning of the route was new but when they got to the ridge, they continued along the American route. On July 16 Sala, Daniele Consolini, Maria Cresci, Fosco Masini, Fabrizio Desco and I climbed a 5400-meter peak by its eastern slope. We had much bad weather. The best weather seems to be in May and June and from September to November.
