2005 British Habuqung Shan

The Habuqung Shan mountain range lies west of Lhasa and north of Sangsang and is believed to contain 16 peaks over 6,000m, the highest being Dobzebo. Although British climbers visited an area a little to the north in 2002, it is thought that no climbing has ever taken place in the range. This team explored the area, and made the first ascent of Dobzebo North (6,412m) via its south face and of Dobzebo South (6,429m) via its south-west ridge, experiencing no technical difficulties on either.
