The Sherpas of Everest Series: Ang Phu Sherpa

Ang Phu Sherpa came from Khumjung, Solukhumbu. He was born in 1950 and summited Everest the first time on May 3rd, 1978 via the standard south east ridge route. He summited Everest a second time with the Yugoslav Everest expedition via the true west ridge on May 15th, 1979. Ang Phu and Stipe Bozic bivouac at 8300 meters for the night at about midnight. Sadly he fell on the way down and died.

Ang Phu Sherpa was the leading and best known sirdar at the time of his death.
