Asia, Nepal, Dhaulagiri Winter Ascent

Dhaulagiri Winter Ascent. Our expedition was composed of Louis Audoubert, François Poissonier, Patrick Marcelot, Lionel André, Paul Vuillard, Annie Dubois and me. On December 1, Sundare Sherpa and I left Base Camp at 4700 meters and got to 7100 meters at six P.M. We left our bivouac at 5:30 A.M. and got to the top at 12:30. With a wind gauge on the summit ridge, I recorded a wind of 150 kilometers per hour.
