Tarke Kang (Glacier Dome). A French expedition led by Bernard Muller attempted this peak by its north face. They pitched three camps above Base Camp. They had reconnoitered to 21,000 feet above Camp III on October 8.Heavy snowfall brought avalanches which swept the camp, destroying the tent. The four occupants managed to get out and dug a snow cave, which in turn was covered by slides. They managed to get down in the deep snow and called the expedition off.
