Imperial College Hidden Garhwal

This expedition had both scientific and mountaineering aims, and recorded great success in both. After setting up a long-term study into the impact that tourists and trekkers have on the mountain environment, they then turned their attention to making their own impact on unclimbed peaks. They achieved first ascents of Jung Minar (5,680m) via its NE face, Pyramid Peak (6,036m) via its N ridge and 'Peak A' (6,200m) by its N and NW ridges. On Peak 6128 they climbed to the highest point yet reached, but came across an unclimbable section at 5,750m.
