Annapurna (8091 m above sea level) is the tenth highest peak on the earth located in Nepal. Annapurna is located in the northwest of Kathmandu. Although the mountain belongs to the Lower Eight Thousand Peaks, it is a dangerous mountain due to its large area. Approximately 35 people were trapped in the IV camp. Why is the climber stuck at an altitude of 7,400 meters?
Participants of the expedition, includingin. Jarosław Zdanowicz and Waldemar Kowalewski are waiting for another way to the top of the mountain. The conditions are tough, the mountains are icy, and the ropes are missing.
-The attackers of the summit were serviced by the “Heads of Seven Trek” and “Imagine Nepal” agencies (their members won the K2 award in the winter months ago). Obviously, the Nepalese people did not expect the supply of handrails, and their customers were not prepared for this situation. A helicopter will arrive from Kathmandu and drop an 800-meter rope into a height. (…) As Angela Benavides of explorersweb.com rightly pointed out, this situation is dangerous because the Annapurna attackers are in the first possible weather window Nei rushed to the top of the mountain, and many of them may not have time to adapt properly. The vast majority of climbers use supplemental oxygen. Is it enough for the people of Nepal before the helicopter drops the ropes and prepares for them? Will they run out of food? gas Melting snow? -Published articles by travel and journalist Dominik Szczepański on Facebook. His books include “Under the Cold Eyes”, “Nanga Parbat, Snow, Lies and Mountains to Liberation”, “Czapkins- The True Story of Tomek Mackiewicz” or “There is no silence in the ocean.”
It is worth adding that Zdanowicz and Kowalewski told them to climb without additional oxygen.
Annapurna was first climbed in 1950, when the leader of the expedition was Maurice Herzog. A British expedition led by Chris Bonington did not make the next ascent until 1970.
