Is that an avalanche?
Anyway, looks pretty awful in a really good way. Might just have to give that one shot sometime...

Re: Snowfall...

Thanks for your comment. I checked the series I took to find out that the upper moisture is from snowstorm or clouds because almost not moving. The lower is a "small" avalanche, because in the next picture I have it's been moving further down. Good detail you watched, I didn't even realise it first!!!

Re: Really good shot

Thanks, after I have sorted out step by step over 1.500 images from the expedition I will be able to post some more from time to time ...

Re: Gorgeous!

Thanks, flying over is cool, but you should go there one day. It's a very inspiring cicuit around the mountain.

Great shot!

Nikman, do you know anything about the ridge on the right side of the photo? That thing looks perfect. I would love to climb that and then traverse the knife edge to the main summit... Thanks for sharing this!

Re: Great shot!

The normal route goes up behind that ridge to the right. This perspective is a little disturbing. I saw the mountian from all sides and know from the other perspectives, that it's not really a ridge to the right even it looks like from this pic.
Compare this one from the north:
But it's possible going up NE-flank to the east pinnacle and then traversing to mainsummits. Polish climbers already did so.

Interesting MTN -

I've never seen a summit like that! Looks like
(at one time) the east pinnacle and the main
summit were connected, and then a giant piece
of the summit broke off into what was probably a very massive and amazing avalanche.

Simply amazing!!!

Re: Interesting MTN -

Thanks for your comment. You are right, Manaslu is pretty amazing because the sights change from each side a lot.
