Detailed Product Description
SIGNED AND INSCRIBED on the title page by Phil Deutschle.

New York, 1986, 1st edition. 273 pp, photos, illustrations, glossary, maps. The author spent two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in a remote mountain village of Nepal and then set off to climb Pharchamo, 20,580 feet high. Original blue and cream cloth hardcover, dust jacket, Fine.

 
The peak, which lies due south of the Tesi Lapcha, is unnamed on the Schneider Rolwaling Himal map, but is given a spot height of (6273m/20581ft). The Mandala Lamasangu to Everest map calls the peak Parchome, which is quite possibly a spelling mistake. Both Shipton’s and Gregory’s expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude close to 6318 metres (20700ft).

Seen from the pass the mountain is an attractive but straightforward snow peak with a well defined north by north-west ridge rising from the relatively flat, crevassed glacier astride the Tesi Lapche. To the west of the ridge the face forms a uniform snow slope broken by crevasses and small seracs rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau Glacier.

The mountain had an interesting early history, some of which was outlined in 1955 by Dennis Davis and Phil Boultgee, members of the highly successful Merseyside Himalayan Expedition led by Alf Gregory. As well as climbing nineteen summits in and around the Rolwaling Valley, their explorations took them to the head of the Drolambau, where numerous peaks were climbed, up the Ripimu Glacier and into the Menlung Basin via the Ripimu La.
 
This was the most extensive exploration of the area first entered by Shipton that there has been, using a style of expedition, light weight and free ranging, that alas is no longer possible within the kingdom of Nepal.
