British Phari Lapcha (Machermo) 2008

Phari Lapcha (aka Machermo, 6,017m) stands adjacent to the well-trodden route to Gokyo, and this pair hoped to climb a new route on the left-hand side of its north face. However, at approximately half-height, they encountered unconsolidated snow and very difficult mixed ground. They retreated and turned their attention to the north side of Dawa Peak (aka Phari Lapcha West, 5,977m) on which they made probably the third ascent of 'Snotty’s Gully' (ED1) first climbed by Bracey and Bullock on MEF 06/23.
