Menlungtse Norwegian-British Tibet Expedition

Bonington and Fotheringham and their four Norwegian partners approached Menlungtse (7,182m), designated in Chinese as Qiao Ge Ru, from Tingri and the north. After inspecting the N side of this magnificent mountain, they moved to the S and tackled a buttress, reaching 6,100m before being forced off by abnormal weather and thunderstorms. Tracks of a 'chuti' or small yeti were seen.
