I just missed the summit on 17 july 1982.Sylvain Suadain made the first 8000er ski descent. Ali was the first Pakistani to summit. He later died on K2.We left behind Hussain, buried on a ledge.I rolled 600 feet on the summit face before a miracle saved me.I made it all alone to camp 5. Other summiteers were, Marie Valencot, Daniel Semblent, Jean Pierre Ollagnier.Others who accompanied me were Luarent Chevallier(cameraman) and Felix Oppenhiem (photographer).
