Isn't that Kala Pattar...

...the dark brown 'bump' in front of Pumori? Nice shot - thanks for the photo and the info, Bruno.

Enjoyed your photo album. I love the pics of the Everest Group from the north-east, an angle that they're rarely viewed from.

Re: Isn't that Kala Pattar...

Yes, it is (by the way KP is not a peak at all, but just a bump lacking any prominence on Pumori South Ridge).

To what pictures of Everest are you referring to? I can't remember having posted such photos.

Apologies Bruno,

I was incorrect about attributing the Everest photo I remembered to you. Now I can't find it at all!

I still appreciate all your photos, your Kalaxung photos are splendid, as are your pictures of Lunag Ri and many other lesser-known peaks.

Thanks for posting them all,

Big Lew
