TENTATIVE AU PIC PAIJU
Belgium / 1977 / 65'
During the summer of 1975, six alpinists in a Belgian French expedition got together to conquer Paiju Peak, at an altitude of 6700 metres, in the pakistan Karakorum mountains. which have not previously been climbed. The Balti porters' help proves to be indispensable to carry the material which the expedition needs, but there is absolute incomprehension amd ruthless opposition between the groups. The porters threaten to strike and the alpinists, obstricted bt the monsoon, realize that the possibility of conquering Paiju Peak is eluding them.
