British Manaslu SW Face

This lightweight attempt by two climbers established Advanced Base at 4,350m, fixed ropes up the rock pillar to 5,200m, and from a bivouac at 6,500m attempted to push along the horizontal ridge to the summit, but could not complete the climb owing to the excessive length of the route.
