Nanga Parbat 1993

After an abortive attempt on the Mazeno Ridge last year (92/17) the leader returned with one Polish companion in the hope of completing the ridge. After making first ascents of Mazeno Spire and Mazeno West Peak (5,700m) he was hit by an avalanche whilst descending unroped, and was swept some 400m over rock and ice cliffs, badly damaging his already-pinned ankle in the process. No attempt was made on the main objective.
