Meru Shark’s Fin, yet another attempt. British climbers Jon Bracey, Julian Cartwright and Matt Dickinson approached this attractive rock face from the Gangotri Glacier and established base camp on September 16 . The team was quickly reduced to two members, making logistics on the face difficult, so although the weather was good, they were unable to reach the summit.
