Scottish Annapurna III

A porters' strike on the fIfth day out, the resulting exhaustion from heavy load-carrying, coupled with the unseasonable snowfalls of October 1985, prevented this party from reaching higher than the 5,200m col between Machapuchare and Annapurna Ill, from which the only glimpse of their objective was obtained, before retreat.
