Record of the 1938 German expedition to Nanga Parbat. In June 1938, the vanguard of the German expedition to the Himalayas, after many laborious detours through the labyrinth of the glaciers, had reached Camp IV at 6200m of altitude. A violent storm, which raged for over five days, left the team blocked in camp IV, with food and fuel in decidedly low quantities. They send an S.O.S., which is collected by the aviators in Srinagar, who manage to get food, parachuting them, to the unfortunates blocked by snow. The team, led by Paul Bauer, will still have to retire due to adverse weather conditions.
