This is largely a photographic account of the 1973 Italian expedition to Annapurna. The 11-member team followed the French first-ascent route up to Camp II on a plateau and then broke off in a new direction up the NW Spur. They had established Camp III and IV and reached 23,125’ when a storm broke. Two members stayed in Camp II while the others descended. Tragically, a large ice and rock avalanche swept the plateau and eliminated Camp II and the two climbers who remained there. The expedition was then abandoned. This book weighs four pounds.

In Italian.
