The British climbers took eight days to ascend the glacier and place Base Camp at 3650 meters on July 21, 1984. Advance Base was established on July 29 at 4875 meters after an eight-mile ascent through icefalls. On July 30 they placed a camp at 5250 meters at the foot of the west ridge. From there Steve Pymm and Martin Burregar climbed alpine-style in five days to the summit, which they reached on August 4, 1984.
