Brits Climb Chang Himal North Face

Report by DMM:

British Alpinists Nick Bullock and Andy Houseman have succeeded on one of the 'great unclimbed faces' with their ascent of Chang Himal's (a.ka. Wedge Peak) 1800 metre north face in Nepal's Kanchenjunga Himal.

Tom Briggs, Graham Desroy and Mandi Shipton who had trekked into base camp (5140 m) with Nick and Andy, returned to the U.K. early last week, leaving the two Alpinists with the route ahead of them.
