Annapurna 11 04 Manaslu Southwest Face Close Up From Chame [4 of 29]
From Chame, the magnificent Southwest face of Manaslu is perfectly visible. This face was first climbed by Reinhold Messner on April 25, 1972. After he reached the summit, a fierce storm came up and he had to fight for his life to reach their high camp. Franz Jager, who turned back, was caught out in the storm and died. Andi Schlick and Horst Fankhausen braved the storm to try and find Franz, but Andi got lost and also died.
