Detailed Product Description

Tokyo, 1954, first edition. 217 + 17 pp, b/w photos. Introduction in English, 100's of photos, maps, fold outs. Includes accounts of the 1952 and 1953 Japanese Manaslu expeditions. Hardcover Fine, DJ Very Good+. 

1952  A Japanese reconnaissance party of six, led by Kinji Imanishi, also examined the western side of the mountain after an unsuccessful attempt on Annapurna 4 in autumn. They, then crossed over Larkya Bhanjyang pass and made it to base camp above Sama Village. They stepped in to the Manaslu Glacier and reached just below the Naike Col to find their route up the NE Face would be the most possible line to the summit plateau. They also reached a 5275m point on the E Ridge and observed the SE Face which seemed to be impossible.

1953 A 15-member Japanese Alpine Club party, led by Yukio Mita, made the first attempt to the NE Face in spring. BC was established on April 12 on the left bank of the Manaslu Glacier at 3850m. On June 1, after making nine camps, Kiichiro Kato, Jiro Yamada and Shojiro Ishizaka made the summit bid but retreated at the highest point of 7750 m.
