If anyone has the book, check the top photo on page 117 of On Top of the World by John Cleare. It will confirm this perfectly.
If the photo would have been taken from the Mt. Everest direction, everyone would have recognised it instantly (since so many photos from Everest show Makalu), but this photo was taken from the SE.

Any help? I have compared it to all the major volcanoes I could find in western USA as well as several from Mexico and Bolivia but I can't find a match.
note the cactus and open grasslands in the foreground...
They obviously mistook a photo of Makalu for Everest in this article.
