Manaslu Solo Winter Attempt, 1991. Frenchman Eric Monier attempted to climb the normal route on Manaslu in winter. He reached 7950 meters on January 6, 1991 before having to give up the attempt. He realized he had been hallucinating. He had been talking to “people” who had been accompanying him, including a woman who said she was 100,000 years old.
