Back of Jambeyang, then and now

Just came across this unpublished pic taken by Joseph Rock on his circuit around the Konkaling (Yading) peaks. This was taken round the back of Jambeyang. I know exactly where he took it because we had great difficulty reaching the same spot! It's on the steep sides of the upper Lawatong valley. Looking back at the way we came, you can see the valley on the right from which we descended the Yaka pass. Note how the glacier below Jambeyang as receded in the 'ampitheatre'. Rock obviously had less clear weather than when we did the kora - in my picture you can see Chanadorje in the distance at upper right.
