Huascaran 30th July 2011 Expedition News

Leader: Liam Scott

Team: Jerry B, Friedhelm B, Bjorn N, Tor-Eivind F, Mette S

16th Aug - Liam emailed through the final update for the group.

Sadly Jerry was having problems with an old knee injury and decided it was too painful to carry on, so stayed at base camp. the rest of the team moved up to Camp 1. Bjorn & Tor decided that they did not want to carry on any further and headed down to base camp. This left Liam, Mette and Friedhelm and the local guide. They headed up to Camp 2, which proved extremely hard work due to the conditions. Once at camp 2 the weather started to deteriorate and Mette and Friedhelm decided that they did not want to attempt the summit. All the team are now down safe and in high spirits despite not reaching the summit.

Muztag Ata 23rd July 2011 Expedition News

Leader: Di Gilbert

Team: James M, Mari V, Duncan M, Christopher H.

14th Aug - The team planned to leave in the early hours of Sunday morning, however thunder, lightening, strong winds and snow put a stop to that. So the team decided to wait until the storm had abated. Eventually at 10:00hrs on Sunday morning the team finally made their way up from Camp 3 in their bid to reach the summit of Muztag Ata. The route required lots of trail breaking which is extremely hard work at that altitude, Chris and Duncan turned around at 7150m and returned to camp. Di and James battled on braving full Scottish conditions and reached the summit at 18:30hrs. All the team are now back down safe at Camp 3 with jelly legs - a hard day indeed. Well done to all the team. They will now clear all the camps from the mountain and leave base camp for Kashgar in the next couple of days.
