British Padar Himalayan Expedition 1980

Their report, though late, is a fine tribute to the memory of Christopher Lloyd, who fell to his death on 23 August 1980 near the summit of Chiring Peak, at the head of the Hagshu Nullah in Kishtwar. Despite this disaster, the surviving members of the 4-man team made 2 attempts on Peak 6,100 and on 16 September succeeded in the first ascent of the peak they named Khogaya Dost (Hindi for 'Lost Friend') - 5,638m
