New Zealand Everest Expedition

This nine-member team attempted the traditional route on the N face of Everest, but approaching it by the Middle Rongbuk glacier and left-hand start of the Great Couloir. One member reached the top of the Third Step at 8730m but turned back rather than proceed alone. Others retreated on a second attempt owing to absence of bottled oxygen.
