British Chogolisa Expedition

This five-member party led by Fanshawe made a successful traverse of the twin peaks of Chogolisa (7,665m, 7,654m) in light-weight alpine style between 10 and 15 August. Three members subsequently attempted nearby Broad Peak, but sadly, on 25 August, when Liam Elliot was close to the summit, a cornice gave way under him, and he fell 2,000m to his death on the E (Chinese) side of the ridge.
