1995 British Cordillera Sarmiento

This team planned to explore one of the world's last unexplored range of mountains, only photographed for the first time in 1990. However, even for Patagonia the weather was bad, and an ascent of the highest peak, La Dama Blanca (2,225m) failed owing to a hidden valley and avalanche risk. However, they achieved the first ascent of another significant peak which they called 'Pico Anwa', c1,760m.
