Yalung Face first ascent route
The upper Yalung Face of Kangchenjunga, showing the route of the first ascent, May 1955, as best I can determine from plates in Evan's book Untrodden Summit.
Joe Brown and George Band reached the summit first, followed the next day by Streather and Hardie.
All stopped a few feet below the top in respect of the beliefs of the people of Sikkim.
Photo taken by me, October 1998.
