The primary objective was an ascent of an unclimbed 6,246m peak in the Humla region of the far west of Nepal. Base camp was reached in a four-day trek from Simikot. Reconnaissance to the edge of the glacier from the north reached two tent platforms, and rubbish including polypropylene rope, presumably for fixed lines. They established a high camp to attempt the N ridge, but discovered steep loose rock. They then made another attempt, this time on the E ridge, which they climbed in a three-day round-trip. The route was estimated as 1,300m in length, and graded AD+. They found a section of fixed rope low down on the glacier but none higher up, which led them to believe that this was a first ascent. They subsequently found that the local name for the peak was Lasarmu La.
