Scottish Bhagirathi III Expedition

AlIen Fyffe and Bob Barton succeeded in their objective-the unclimbed SW Pillar of Bhagirathi III (6,454m). They took 11 days on the climb from the Brown Tower, bivouacking on inadequate ledges for the 44 lower pitches, 30 of them on superb granite, and completing the climb Alpine-style, over shale and· black ice overlaid with powder snow. Descent was by N ridge and E face, involving long walk back to base.
