South face of Makalu
The south face of Makalu, seen from about 18,000 feet elevation above Hillary Camp.
The summit is still 10,000 feet above us, and the roar of the jet stream cutting across it was clearly audible.
October, 2002.

Hi Alan,

Here you go, I just uploaded a bigger scan. My scanner seems to be aging and I'm not thrilled with the quality, but it's still better than the small SP v1 version that was here earlier.

While I was at it, you got two for the price of one. I also rescanned this one.

Hope those are OK for you. I spent 3 days around the south side of Makalu before we crossed Sherpani Col. AMAZING PLACE!

Thank you, man !
Hope it didn't cost you much....
It will help me to draw one route.
I'm helping (maybe too strong word?)
vertx in updating Makalu page - with
Yugoslav route '72 & '75 on south wall.
It helps especialy in lower part of
route, on that big brown rock.
Thank you, again! and again ;)
What a mountain.....
