British Kero Lungma 2005

This trip was originally proposed by Dave Wilkinson, but he was unable to participate owing to a climbing injury incurred beforehand. The intention was to return to the Kero-Lungma glacier (visited by two of them in 1996) to explore its north-east branch and climb some of the biggest peaks at its head. They were successful in making what was probably the first ascent of 'Twin Peak l' (c5,500m), but had to retreat several times from high camps on 'Twin Peak H' (c5,450m) and Peak 6123m due to poor weather and dangerous conditions. They warned future expeditions to the area that indicated heights varied from one map to another, and rarely agreed with their own findings.
