Any expedition to an area close to the 'inner line' is likely to experience problems in obtaining permits, but these are accentuated when local officials are uncertain of its location. The team also lost valuable time in finding the best access to their objective: the unclimbed Tirsuli West (7035m). They climbed two ridges with unclimbed summits up to 6,300m on branches of the mountain's W ridge, but failed to reach the main summit.
