"AVALANCHE" by Daniela Teixeira
The history of the last days of our attempt at balakun (6471 M).

Footnote: This was our second expedition in Sathophant valley. The first, was in 2010, when we accomplished the second ascent of Ekdant (6100m) by a new route, and the first ascent of Kartik (5115m). This time, we found the mountains extremely dry and dangerous, with rocks falling everywhere. High temperatures also influenced the remaining snow, as on our attempt on Balakun (6471m), triggering the unsuspected snow avalanches we witnessed, ultimately causing our failure.
Just by curiosity, here is two photos showing the contrast between 2010 and 2019.
