British Masherbrum Expedition

This 12-member party aimed to make the first ascent of Masherbrum by the E ridge and also to climb Masherbrum East (7,821m) and to paraglide from the summit. Their highest camp was established on the snow-dome at about 6,500m, close to the base of Masherbrum East and just below the SE ridge of Masherbrum. Several attempts on the S face of Masherbrum East were forced back at 6,700m by heavy snowfalls. Paragliding was only possible at lower levels.
