In addition to putting all 20 members on the summit of Ancohuma (6,427m) in Bolivia's Cordillera Real and launching two hang gliders from the spot, this mixed team of mainly Service personnel completed a major study of weight loss at altitude. This was a continuation of the work carried out on earlier trips, including the British Mount Everest Medical Expedition (94/1). Subsequently, a smaller party climbed Illimani, (6,462m).
