Topic - Brit success on Nanga Parbat

Morgan Woods - on 04 Nov 2012
Not sure why this didn't make the news on here:

Sandy Allan and his climbing partner Rick Allen were at their last camp below the summit of Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth highest mountain, when they gathered together the food they had left.

After 14 days on the vast unclimbed Mazeno Ridge the longest in the Himalayas it amounted to a packet of McVitie's Digestives biscuits.
