The Mountaineers

Nuptse, Southwest Ridge Attempt. Swede Magnus Lekman and three Sherpas tried a new approach to an unclimbed ridge on Nuptse, a southwest ridge to a south rib. They gave up on October 24 after only a week when they found strong winds and route difficulties prevented progress above 6500 meters.
