Annapurna 12 05 Annapurna II Full Summit Ridge From Ghyaru [9 of 29]
I decided to take the high route to Manang because it is supposed to be more interesting. From Pisang (3240m) I crossed the river and started the 450m ascent. On the climb from Pisang to Ghyaru, I had this great view of the full summit ridge of Annapurna II (7937m) to the southwest. Annapurna II was first climbed on May 17, 1960 via the West Ridge approached from the north by Chris Bonington, Richard Grant, and Sherpa Ang Nyima on a British/Indian/Nepalese team led by Jimmy Roberts.
