Lachenal was a tremendous post-war French climber who was a constant companion of Lionel Terray with whom he made the second ascent of the Eiger. He was also a member of Herzog’s 1950 Annapurna expedition. His account, given here, was published following his death and heavily edited by Herzog’s brother. See Roberts’ ‘True Summit’ for a current account of Lachenal’s thoughts on the Annapurna climb. In French, no English translation. Perret 2512.
