Manaslu, Ascent and Tragedy. Michael Zunk went to the 8163-meter summit of Manaslu on May 7 with teammates Joerg Bartock and Steffen Thomas as part of an 11-member German expedition led by Holger Kloss. On the descent, Zunk fell for unknown reasons. The day before, in spite of the effort of his colleagues, Joerg Starke had become very fatigued and died.
