This is the last chance to climb and summit the 8,163m Manaslu for Georg Leithner.
Strong winds in the summit region prevent his summit approach and he turns back at 7,800m.
Our Manaslu Expedition has come to an end. We are happy as 3 out of 4 climbing team members successfully reached the summit and we have all return back healthy. All camps including base camp are packed and the team starts the long walk back to civilization.
Director: Hannes Kuenkel, Nils Peuse
Athletes: Hannes Groebner, Markus Amon, Georg Leithner, Sepp Hechenberger
