9 3 Makalu North Face From Shao La In Tibet  [1 of 19]


Makaluís knife-edge northeast ridge looked imposing from the Shao La, but this was the final stage of the first ascent by the French in 1955. Lionel Terray and Jean Couzy (both members of the French ascent of Annapurna in 1950) climbed from the Makalu La, across and up the north face, reaching the summit on May 15th.
