1998 Scottish Savoia Kangri

Although located in the popular Baltoro area, Savoia Kangri (7,286m) apparently remains unclimbed: this team hoped to make the first ascent by a previously unattempted route on its SE face. With climbing only sustained Scottish grade 3, the main problem was the continual rockfall, which scored three 'man-strikes'. The attempt was eventually abandoned at c7,000m due to deep unconsolidated snow.
