MACHAPUCHARE ( 6993 mt.) NEPAL ( A sus pies dormí hace 25 años )

Has never been climbed to its summit.The only attempt was in 1957 by a British team led by Jimmy Roberts. Climbers Wilfrid Noyce and A. D. M. Cox climbed to within 50 m of the summit via the north ridge, but did not complete the ascent; they had promised not to set foot on the actual summit. Since then, the mountain has been declared sacred, and it is now forbidden to climbers.
