Cherskiy Mountains

As the first Westerners to visit these mountains in NE Siberia, this team had the area to itself and were able to achieve 7 first ascents of peaks approx 3,000m high. A pencilled line on a 1:500,000 pilotage map was the only guidance that they had for their heavily laden 165km walk-out at the end of the climbing: this was accomplished in 9 days, just in time to catch their return flight.
