British Gaurishankar 1995

Ideas of attempting the West Face of this striking 7,134m peak were scrapped when it was realised that the approach might take three weeks. Permission was therefore obtained to transfer to the SE Ridge instead. The only viable access to this was over Terseringma, 6,333m, which they climbed with difficulty owing to weather conditions, falling rock and the necessity of using much fixed rope. From the top, the SE Ridge of Gaurishankar looked most unstable, so no further progress was made.
