2003 British Kyrgyz-Kuilu

This expedition was intended to enable members to celebrate the fiftieth birthday of the Chester Mountaineering Club, so had to cater for a wide range of abilities. Being little visited, the Kuilu-Too range of Kyrgyzstan was selected as the venue, as it gave opportunities for exploration and first ascents of a range of peaks in excess of 4,000m. Operating as five separate teams, the party achieved first ascents of at least seven peaks between 4,100m and 4,780m and from UK II scramble/PD to D.
