British Mera South Face Expedition

Despite the deep snow of this early-season start, Base Camps were established below both the N and S faces of Mera (6,461m), in the Khumbu Himal near Lukla. Two members succeeded in the first ascent of the SW pillar of Mera, descending to the Mera La. Two others turned back just short of the summit.
