Asia, Nepal, Annapurna Summer Attempt

Annapurna Summer Attempt. A Japanese expedition of five led by Ichiro Hosoda attempted to climb Annapurna’s north face by the Dutch Rib but had to give up at 5840 meters on August 10 after two camps were destroyed by avalanches during the three weeks they were on the mountain. No one was injured.
