British Kedar Dome 2006

When his original partner withdrew from this project to climb what Parnell suggested could be 'the hardest route in the Himalaya', he was fortunately able to recruit a replacement who, despite an excellent climbing CV, would be making his first visit to the Greater Ranges. The aim was a new route on the east face of Kedar Dome (6,831m), and despite Emmett's lack of altitude experience, in a six-day push they successfully climbed an entirely 'free' on-sight route up the massive SE pillar, descending by the west face.
