British Thunder Mountain & Mount Hunter 1997

After five attempts on the Central Spur of Thunder Mountain (c 3,350m) this team switched its attention to the gully line on the left, which was climbed in a continuous 42-hour round trip. The route, which they called Dream Sacrifice, involved 1,070m of climbing at Alpine grade E2, but predominantly on ice at Scottish V/VI. They also made the first ascent of Mount Providence, 3,414m, by an 1,100m Alpine D, Scottish III route on its S Face, but did not attempt Mount Hunter.
