British Khaitar 1995

On their first visit to the Greater Ranges, this team hoped to make first ascents of Khaitar (5,591m) and/or Chari Khand, (5,886m) in the Naltar area of the Karakoram. A reconnaissance of the former revealed it to be very steep and swept by stonefall, so they turned their attention to the SW face of Chari Khand. Unseasonably warm weather (O°C at 5,200m!) meant that there was a high risk of avalanche, so the attempt was terminated at c5,400m.
