British Chamar 2000

Despite having a valid permit from the Nepalese Ministry of Tourism & Civil Aviation to climb the West Face of Chamar, 7,187m, on arrival in the Sringi Khola, where they planned to establish a base camp, the local Lama would not allow this team to attempt it. Learning that if they continued they might be stoned to death, discretion deemed it advisable to try approaching the mountain from a different side. Unfortunately, the E side turned out to be in the same high-avalanche-risk condition reported by a British expedition six years earlier (MEF Ref 94/20). As a result the attempt was aborted at 5,900m.
