Manaslu winter: Avalanches and Cold

Pythom Dispatch Feed

French climber Elisabeth Revol is continuing her winter attempt of Manaslu. While the Satori team is supporting her at base camp. Revol and her climbing partner Ludovic Giambiasi, who will climb with her to camp II, report strong winds, cold temperatures and heavy snow.

It has snowed most every day while they have been on the mountain, creating tough conditions to acclimate and conduct rotations, not to mention the constant avalanche risk.
