Yutmaru Sar Attempt. Our expedition in the late summer found the southeast ridge of Yutmaru Sar objectively too dangerous and so we turned to a spur which led to the west ridge of Kanjut Sar, hoping to descend from there to the Kanjut-Yutmaru col. Unfortunately the bottom of the spur was constantly swept by falling séracs from Kanjut. We had to give up.
