Imperial College Shar Kangsum 2005

There are about 15 peaks above 6,000m in the Shar Kangsum range of Tibet, and this University expedition planned to explore and make first (official) ascents of as many of them as possible. Although they had to abandon an attempt on their main objective Purba (aka Shahkangsham, 6,822m) at c6,000m due to avalanche risk, they were successful in making the first ascents of three other others: Peak 6603, Peak 6210 and Peak 6390, each being climbed 'alpine style' at grades up to PD+.
