Hucho Alchori 2000

The Hucho Alchori Glacier lies off the Keralungma, South of Hispar, and a team member who had visited the area previously felt it offered plenty of scope for exploration and first ascents of sub-6,000m peaks. However, lean conditions in the previous winter resulted in the proposed routes being incomplete and threatened by stonefall. Persistent rain meant that all other peaks had a high avalanche risk. Exploration of the area revealed traces of Fanny Bullock-Workman's camp from the early 1900s. Hopefully, climbers in the next century will not find evidence of any MEF-supported expeditions in this one!
