Asia, Nepal, Dhaulagiri Winter Attempt by Spaniards

Dhaulagiri Winter Attempt by Spaniards. The Koreans agreed to share the normal northeast-ridge route with the Spanish Catalans. The highest point reached by this expedition was 7000 meters, where leader Enric Lucas and Joan Carlos Griso bivouacked on December 22. The next day they descended because Griso was developing high-altitude sickness. They had had bad weather and now a bad spell returned. By the time the weather turned fine, their food was running out and they decided on December 26 to quit.
