Sheffield Ogre 2 Expedition 1982

A strong four-man team, including Paul Nunn and Al Rouse, reached 6,350m on the NW ridge of the W peak of Ogre 2, but then had to retreat. They investigated the S face in the hope of finding a faster way to the central summit, and later tried the S ridge of the W peak, but retreated after 12 hours of 'extremely threatened' climbing and a bivouac in an exposed position. A serious attempt on a difficult and extremely dangerous peak - Death Valley between the two Ogres is well named.
