British 'Ogre' North Face Expedition

Owing to treacherous weather and snow conditions, this eight-man team failed to achieve their objective: the steep and previously unexplored N face of the 'Ogre'. On their first attempt they had nearly reached the top when they were avalanched by a serac fall from 500m above; one man suffered a bruised shoulder. Their second attempt was aborted when snow conditions proved unjustifiable.
