Kishtwar Himalaya-Sickle Moon (6639m)

A 7-man Cumbrian team under Ron Rutland attempted an untried line on the steep ice-face leading directly to the summit. From a bivouac at 5,200m, grade IV/V ice pitches were overcome, but rapidly deteriorating weather forced a retreat at 5,800m after a night spent in deep new snow.
