British Hispar 1994

This party planned to make first ascents from the Yengutz but once in the Hispar valley they decided to climb from the Garumbar glacier instead. From here, they climbed Uyumrung Sar (c5,900) from the SE and then Trapezium (c5,800m) from the west, both probably first ascents. An inaccuracy on the Leoman map caused confusion when the leader and Davison moved to Gilgit. They attempted what they thought was Khaitar (c5,600m), when they were actually on the S ridge of South Twin (5,700m): the climb was abandoned well short of the summit owing to lack of rock gear and bivouac equipment.
