Detailed Product Description





This is an original expedition post card of a British expedition that made the first ascent of Nuptse, at 7,861 meters, 25,791 feet, a sister peak to Lhotse and Everest. The main peak, Nuptse I, was first climbed on May 16, 1961 by Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi and the following day by Chris Bonington, Les Brown, James Swallow and Pemba Sherpa, members of a British expedition led by Joe Walmsley.

The card is signed by all the British climbers including Chris Bonington, and probably by the Sherpa Tashi who summited as well. The summiteers were Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi and the following day by Chris Bonington, Les Brown, James Swallow. 

The card was mailed to Mrs. M Walmsley in Manchester England, either the mother or wife of expedition leader J. Walmsley. The card is in excellent condition, and the Nepali stamps have images of Everest and Macha Puchhre, now spelled Machapuchare.
