Manchester Nepalese Expedition 1970

The expedition's primary objective was to reach the summit of the previously unclimbed Nampa (6755m). Through the month of October, the team established a series of camps, first to the Nampa Col at 5395m and thence up the mountain's west ridge to a maximum height of 6248m. Here a combination of poor weather and ill health forced a retreat.
