British Makalu Expedition

After discarding their main objective of the W face of Makalu, and also their secondary objective of the Baxter-Jones Couloir, the climbing members of this large party reached the Makalu La at 7,000m. Two members attempted the NW ridge reaching 8,000m, when an avalanche carried away one man who suffered non-fatal head injuries.
