Annapurna IV Expedition

Earliest expeditions to the Himalayas lead by H.W.Tilman used Annapurna IV to build up his expedition team to other formidable himalayan peaks. A Canadian Everest expedition team in 1981 used its normal route to test and train their climbers. Since 1950 when W.P.Packard and Charles first attempted it many teams have climbed the peaks. Earlier expedition to climb this peak failed because of ice above camp I, weather and logistics. A German expedition lead by Heinz Steinmetz was first to attempt the summit. Base camp is a day from Ongre airport from Manang. Three weeks should be considered for setting up high camps and climbing the peak. And two weeks for walk in and out of base camp. Normal route through East Ridge would be used to attempt the summit.
