Jannu. West pillar. To surpass oneselfIt probably would have been difficult for me to get through so many events and ascents that I have experienced during my long years of climbing and to survive thus far, had it not been for a deep-seated intuitive sense of caution.

The West Face of BaruntseClimbing the almost 1500m route up the face took seven days - seven days of constant physical and psychological tension.

Winter Nanga Parbat Expedition. Daniele Nardi from Base Camp We did not expect so heavy snow fall so we left the equipment into a crevass on 5700m. That's the only possibility to fix a camp in that area so we were forced to fix the tent there

Two new routes on the north face of Ordzhonikidze, 4410 mThere are no walk-downs from the summit of Ordzhonikidze. The easiest route is Russian 2B or French PD. On the icy north face were three existing routes, the first by Alexander Kolegovs team in 1956. Much later, Vassily Pivtsov and various friends added two more, in 2000 and 2004. All these were 4A or 4B

Latok I Saving Chief Mate Gukov Part IIIGukov, what about Gukov? My lively imagination was presenting a picture of him dying there on his ledge.
