Asia, Nepal, Annapurna II Attempt

Annapurna II Attempt. This two-man Japanese team, Kunihiko Kondo and Kazuo Yamamoto, attempted the south face of Annapurna II with no fixed camps or Sherpas. They gave up on October 13 at 7500 meters because of the dangers of the route, which included falling ice, and strong winds.
