British Amne Machin Expedition

This party succeeded in the first ascent of Amne Machin IX (5,690m), the prominent S ourlier of this range in NW Central China. A thorough exploration of the E side of the 30km-long massif was carried out. They failed in a first British ascent of Amne Machin I (6,282m), owing to deterioration of the ice-falls since the Japanese ascent; and in a first ascent of Amne Machin Ill, turning back 600m below the summit.
