Thalay Sagar (6920m)

Of the 30 days that the Anthoines, Malcolm Howells and Pete Minks spent in their attempt on the N face of this fine mountain, only 2 were without snowfall. After suffering an earthquake at base camp, and avoiding repeated avalanches in the couloir leading to the col between Thalay Sagar and Bhrigupanth, the party made slow progress on the difficult, ice-choked cracks on the exposed N face, retreating at 6,460m with the firm intention to return in better conditions.
