Meru Shark's Fin 1993

This five-man team included some of Britain's strongest rock climbers, and aimed to climb the Shark's Fin on Meru (c6,600m) in the Gangotri. However, after climbing pitches of E5/ 6b one of the party dropped a boot whilst getting dressed at c6,000m, necessitating an urgent descent to prevent frostbite. It also meant the end of the expedition.
