Cambridge Karakoram Expedition 1984

This six- member team, led by James Mayers, did some medical project work in Hunza, mapped the snout of the Minapin glacier (finding it had receded 10m since the International Karakoram Project), studied the Himalayan snowcock in its natural habitat in the Minapin area, but found their time cut short unexpectedly by a Himalayan bear which consumed the expedition's rations. The party trekked out from Gilgit into Chitral.
