British Baruntse Expedition

This six-member party took the long approach route from Dharan up the Barun valley past Makalu Base Camp to attempt the SE ridge of Baruntse (7,104m) from the lower Barun glacier. Some members had acclimatization problems, but two reached 6,880m on the ridge before snow conditions forced retreat.
