An attempt on Lobuje East, 1991

Monday, 21 October 1991 – From the foot of the Cho La pass to our Lobuje East base camp: We had a group photograph taken at the top of the pass, which was just as well, because it was the highest point reached by all nine members of our team. Squatting in front (from left to right) are Rod, Dave, Mike, and Jon; standing (from left to right) are me, Geoff, Ralph, Eric, and Diane. Lobuje East, our expedition’s primary goal, is the peak towering above Diane Cowan’s head.
