British Nyanchen Tangla
Always on the lookout for obscure peaks, this year Town selected Jomo Gankar (aka Qunghoganeze), 7,048m, in central Tibet, some 100km NNW of Lhasa, and W of the road to Golmud. The lower one-third of the mountain turned out to be far more technical than had been anticipated, and they ran out of fixed rope at 5,900m, necessitating a retreat whilst it was still possible. On the plus side, they were almost certainly the first foreigners to visit the N side of the mountain, as a result of which they observed many unclimbed 6,000m peaks. No doubt they will return.
