The plan, objectives and ethos

The trip was be self reliant, attempting to summit previously unclimbed peaks in a pure alpine style; leaving no trace.

The trip was exploratory in nature, and aimed to open up new climbing areas, summit virgin peaks, and increase the awareness for british exploration, and help to bring tourism to a struggling area of the world.

Unclimbed principle summits

After several days spent trauling through expedition photo's and reports I have managed to come up with a list of 9 of the principle unclimbed summits that we may attempt in the 20ish days we will spend in the range.
At the top of our wish list is the north face of the ''rour tond'' pictured at the start of the blog; though to be around the 5000m mark.

We plan to hire horses from nomad's living close to the range in order to establish a base camp as high as possible into the heart of the range, this will mean less walking between BC and ABC and should give us more time and energy to climb. Tom rideing a horse; what could go wrong?
