Background: Lone Pole in the forthcoming Swiss Himalayan expedition will be the expert Alpinist, Dr. Jerzy Hajdukiewicz. Here he is training at Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains for the gruelling tests ahead.
The Tatras are no match for the Himalayas, of course, but they serve to keep the Doctor fit for the attempt on Dhalaugiri - the third unconquered 8,000 metres high mountain of the Himalayas.
Dr. Hajdukiewicz is sailing first to Bombay where he will join up with the Swiss party.
