British Services Gasherbrum I 1996

This team, consisting of 'the best mountaineers that the Services could produce' experienced weather alternating between quite long good and bad spells. A particularly heavy dump of snow hindered the establishment of Camp I, so they put in a temporary Camp I/2 which subsequently proved to be a useful staging post. Combining their efforts with a Spanish service team, the 'Japanese Couloir' was eventually climbed, and the 8,068m summit achieved by Dan Carroll, John Doyle, Andy Hughes and Steve Hunt.
