Masherbrum (1981)

The RAF Mountaineering Association's 8-man team, under Gp. Capt. Honey and Sqn/Ldr. E. J. M. Thomas, /had as their objective the SW summit of Masherbrum (7,803m). Despite the threat of bombardment in 'Scaley Alley' and the persistent deep snow, particularly over the 5,950m Dome, they pushed a party up to Camp 7, and 2 members might have reached the summit had the weather been kinder. One member fell sick at Camp 5 and was successfully brought down by sledge.
