Rubbish on the Rongbuk Glacier

Rubbish on the Rongbuk Glacier. I should like to register a complaint about the huge piles of rubbish left by Japanese, French and to an extent British expeditions at a camp at about 5600 metres on the Rongbuk Glacier just past our Advance Base. It is a place you can get yaks to and that makes it even more inexcusable.
