Durham University Mountaineering Club Sim Gang Glacier 1994

After establishing an advanced Base Camp at the head of the Sim Gang glacier, this team picked an interesting but unnamed peak (c5,800m), and in one day climbed to within 150m of its summit. At this point they were on a very narrow ridge of unstable boulders, so decided not to progress further. Any ideas of other routes had to be shelved when a bear raided their Base Camp, and ate all the food stored there.
