British K7 1993

This five-man team hoped to make the first ascent of the SW ridge of this 6,934m peak in the Hushe valley (2nd overall) but experienced appalling weather, with 26 days of snow. They also suffered malfunctioning stoves and had food stolen by ravens, so they did well to reach 6,300m (after 32 days on the face) before abandoning the attempt. One member of the team sustained a knee injury but 'was made to continue'.
