White Sail West Face Expedition

Two members of this party succeeded, despite poor weather, shortage of food and five bivouacs above 6,000m, in making the fIrst ascent of Dharmsura ('White Sail', 6,445m), W face. On returning to Base Camp three days later than expected, they found that the other two members, having reached the summit by the SW ridge, had presumed the first pair dead and had departed, leaving neither message, food nor money.
