Annapurna III - British SE Pillar Expedition

The continuation of the monsoon into October forced Kekus and Tinker to abandon their attempt on the SE Pillar. The attempt on the E ridge by Pilling and Uttley ended in persistently bad snowfall on a small ledge at 6,300m where Uttley developed chest pains and a bad cough. Pilling descended to seek help and after 5 days Uttley was rescued by Kekus and Tinker.
