Anglo-American Bublimotin 1995

Sandy Britain, who was to lead the expedition, had to withdraw before departure owing to injury. The remainder of the team hoped to complete a new route on the SE face of this 6,000m rock spire in Hunza. Bad weather and warm temperatures made the approach to that line impractical, so an attempt was made to repeat a line to the left put up by American Jim Beyer in 1990. After climbing pitches of E2/3 and A3, they reached 5,670m (approx half-height), but then aborted owing to lack of food. All in-situ ropes were removed from the route on descent.
