In 1984 Mark Adams and I tried to climb a remote and unclimbed mountain in West Nepal. We had to trek from near the Indian border to Jumla. This took two weeks. Another few days took us to our base camp where we left our Sherpas. We crossed a 5000m pass to get into the Changda Khola. From there, after being pinned down by heavy snow fall for some days, we hauled our gear up to the foot of the intended ridge. We were running out of food and moved on to below another ridge where Mark made a climb up onto it and found himself looking across into Tibet. I was too exhausted to accompany him. We then had to get out and had to fight to get back to base camp.
