Ladakh - Kang Yatze team climbs two 6000ers: Our Himalayan team led by Mike Thomas had a great time in Ladakh in July-August making ascents of Kang Yatze II (6245m) and Reponi Mallai II (6050m), plus completion of the classic Markha valley trek. An attempt on a new route on Kang Yatze III failed 250 metres below the summit. Great efforts from Wendy Bullard, Brian Girvin, Ruth McCance and Dave Shepherd and thanks to the support crew of Chetan Pandey and Naveen Chandra.

Cuillin Success for Mr Frostbite: - Martin was pleased and proud to guide Nigel Vardy along the Cuillin Traverse from 10-12 July. Nigel lost all his toes and most of his fingers 18 years ago after an epic on Denali in Alaska. Although his rock climbing powers are now severely limited he made an efficient two day crossing, starting up the Dubhs Ridge from Loch Coruisk.
