British Hanuman/Saptasring 1995

Although a permit to attempt Hanuman, 6,075m, had been received from the IMF (and the peak fee paid), this had not been cleared with the authorities in the Garhwal. As a result, when the team arrived in India they were told that the area was off limits, and access was therefore forbidden. Saptasring, 5,718m, above Frank Smythe's 'Valley of Flowers', was offered as an alternative. There was only time for one attempt, and the approach of bad weather forced this to be abandoned at 5,420m.
