Multi-Peak Alpine-Style Expedition to the Makalu Region

This British-American-Nepalese party of 12, led by Doug Scott, combined family climbing from an attractive Base Camp at 4,900m with ascents of Baruntse (7,220m), the hitherto unclimbed E and Central summits of Chamlang (7,290m and 7,235m) and another attempt at a traverse of Makalu, up by the SE ridge and down by the NW original route, which involved some exciting descents of the headwall.
