British Yulong Shan

Continuing his exploration of unusual areas, this leader hoped to make the first ascent of Satseto, 5,730m, the highest peak in the Yulong-Xue Shan range in the N Yunnan Province of China. Approach from the SW via the village of Wen Hai proved impossible owing to distance, intervening peaks and technical climbing: an approach from the SE via Yu Hu was abandoned at 4,000m because of the torrential rain that persisted throughout the time that they were in the area.
