Chaukhamba 1995

An unusually heavy covering of snow on the Gangotri glacier made the approach to the W face of Chaukhamba I, 7,138m, easier than anticipated. However, the difficulties started at the head of the valley, with a steep icefall and serious mixed ground leading to the ridge proper. As a result, the highest point reached was a precarious camp at 6,400m.
