ANNAPURNA 92

MATJAZ ZBONTAR

Slovenia / 1992 / 38'

In autumn a slovenian mountaineering expedition left for Nepal with the hope of climbing the South face of the legendary Annapurna. The expedition included expert climbers but also some young people who had demonstrate their ability on the most difficult climbs in the Alps but were going to the Himalayas for the first time. The Slovenian were witnesses of the terrible accident which cost Pierre Beghin, the famous french mountaineer, his life, and they were able to help his companion Lafaille who had survived eight days fighting to keep alive in the middle of the South Wall. The weather was terrible and every attempt to climb failed. It was one of those times when mountaineers say: we have done everything possible but the mountain did not want us..
