Dhaulagiri Trip Report (#1765)

It was a hard mountain. The winds, the snow and the avalanches where many. I choose to climb Dhaulagiri as my first 8000-m peak, I believe now that maybe I should have chosen another one if I have had the chance. Dhaulagiri is a mountain of contrasts. One day miserable as hell itself and the other day the most beautiful place on earth. If you intend to climb it, take my advice and climb very early under little Eiger! When you go for the summit, don't start later than 2 o'clock at night and make all the effort to go down to camp 2 or further down on the same day! Be careful and good luck! Sincerely Fredrik Sträng
