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.

An Expedition Parton Mike 'twid' Turner FMGA mountain guide: ''Good luck lads, looks like a great area, spend lots of time researching, have fun, enjoy the journey and the people, pull hard and live dangerously''

Three Virgin peaks!

Sam has been in touch today and they are on their way back to Bishkek. They managed to climb three virgin peaks, which is great news and apparently they also 'ate marmot, butchered sheep, baked bread in a yurt and rode Kyrgyz horses'.
More news when they are back in Bishkek in a day or so...
