British Jannu 1978

Four experienced British alpinists decided in the autumn of 1977 to attempt a high Himalayan peak in lightweight style. After several months they finally received permission to attempt Jannu (25,294ft), a difficult and attractive summit that has only been ascended on three previous occasions.
