Fourth poster of a series of four.
Reaching the top of the mountain. One mountaineer waves the national flag, a second takes out a Little Red Book, and the third one holds a bust of Chairman Mao.
These posters must refer to the climbing of the Shishapangma (高僧赞峰, also called Xixabangma, 希夏幫馬峰). On 2 May 1964, a Chinese team of mountaineers were the first to reach the top of this 8.027 meters high mountain in the Himalayas.
