The French Direct route was actualy passed on the 5th of july 1979 in a descant of a Yougoslav team who riched the top of Alpamayo by a new Kranj route (4 climbers) and another group of 7 climbers (6 Yougoslav, 1 Peruan) who climbed up the normal N ridge.



The descant ended with a spectacular jump over the bergschrund. See the attached photo and do not repeat, despite all the nice memories of the team.
