12 08 Everest Kangshung East Face From Kama Valley In Tibet [15 of 37]
Here is the South Col (8000m) and Everest Kangshung East Face from Makalu Base Camp in the Kama Valley in Tibet. The British mountaineer George Mallory passed through Kharta in 1921 trying to crack Everest’s defenses. He continued up the Kharta Valley and when he saw the Kangshung Face, he commented: “other men, less wise, might attempt this way if they would, but, emphatically, it is not for us”. It was for Stephen Venables who climbed it in 1988.
