Sadly one Sherpa, from another team, has now been killed in the icefall.
Coming back through the icefall on Friday the boys missed two rock falls by no more than three minutes.
Even as we entered the icefall our feet had occasionally broken the crust; as we came out of it we were stamping a trail.
Changed "icefall" to "ice-fall" on page xxvi: "part of ice-fall."
In ten minutes we came to another corridor like the first, which brought us out above the icefall.
It seemed best to climb the rocks and avoid complications in the icefall.
Some way up or by the side of the icefall of the Lobbia Glacier is yet to be found, but is probably possible.
It had always seemed improbable that these were sracs such as one meets on an Alpine icefall, and clearly they were not.
