British Meru Expedition 1983

This expedition was unlucky in failing- to achieve its objective - the ascent of Meru - owing to the early onset of the Himalayan winter. The N approach to the Meru-Shivling Col was found to be exposed to high objective danger, an alternative new route to the N peak was abandoned at 5,700m owing to heavy snowfall and almost continuous avalanches. Most of their equipment had to be sacrificed but there was fortunately no loss of life.
