Makrong Chhish, East Ridge, Attempt. It was reported that Stephen Sustad and Simon Yates made two attempts on the east ridge of Makron Chhish in August. The first, from August 26-29 via the northeast face, was thwarted at 5400 meters by unclimbable snow; the second, which approached the ridge via the southeast flank on September 1-6, reached 6400 meters before being stopped by dangerous snow conditions and bad weather.
