Karakoram Conquest 93

A very large party from RAF Mountain Rescue teams planned to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Service with this expedition to the Hunza valley. Whilst many went trekking, a hard core attempted 7,266m Diran Peak (aka Minapin). The NE ridge was abandoned owing to adverse snow conditions, but three achieved the summit via the N face.
