Bentley Beetham appears to have labelled this incorrectly as "By 1.30pm Norton and Somervell, along with three of the porters, reached a height of 26,700 ft and here made Camp vi in a narrow cleft in the rocks that faced north. The tent, just big enough for two climbers, was placed on a platform scraped from amongst the loose stones.''

Considering the relative visual heights of Cho-Oyu, the flat topped 26,906 ft (8201m) mountain in the distance, and its much smaller neighbour on the right in the two photographs it would appear that these two pictures (BBE-L-03-N065 and BBE-L-04-081) have been labelled the wrong way round. This would mean the photograph labelled view from Camp vi should actually read view from camp v and the photograph of a solitary and rather precariously positioned tent is the highest placed camp, Camp vi. This is the only know photograph that exists of Camp vi. (al
