British Gasherbrum IV

This eight-member team made attempts, first, on the 'West' (in fact SW) ridge of Gasherbrum IV- to a height of 6,550m, and then, after moving round to the E Gasherbrum Glacier, on the untried S ridge to a height of 7,300m. Stonefall, heavy snow and injuries were the reasons for their retreat.
