Kyrgyzstan '95

After acclimatising on the Ala Archa mountains south of Bishkek, this team hoped to make first ascents of peaks south of the Kayndy glacier. Their first objective was an unnamed peak, but the leader stepped through a cornice at c5,400m and fell to his death. During the subsequent search two Russian guides were killed, and the expedition was therefore abandoned. We offer our sincere sympathy to Mick's family and friends.
