Karakoram Traverse

To mark the 50th anniversary of Shipton's Blank on the Map and to continue his interrupted exploration of 1939, this strong three-man team succeeded in their aim of going up the Biafo glacier to Snow Lake, and pushing on over the Kurdopin pass, where Shipton turned back, to descend the Kurdopin glacier to Shimshal. En route they made the first ascent of the Solu Tower near the Hispar pass.
