British Seligman Harris Mt Everest NE Ridge Expedition

This large and strong team under Brummie Stokes established Advanced Base at 6,400m on 18 August. Making a new approach to the NE ridge, they placed a snowhole camp below the first buttress; two weeks later ropes were fixed to 7,770m and the foot of the pinnacles at 7,900m was reached on 15 October. Violent winds prevented the high-level team of two from crossing the pinnacles and, after four heavy snowstorms, the expedition retreated on 19 October.
