Latok/Ogre 1996

By setting two separate targets, this leader hoped that at least one would record success. Unfortunately, he injured an ankle early in the expedition. In a spell of good weather, Murphy and Wills reached 6,250m on the very technical (Scottish VI) N Ridge of Latok I, 7,145m, before heavy snow stopped further progress. Meanwhile, on the SE Pillar of The Ogre, 7,285m, Dickenson and Powell reached 6,900m (E1/Scottish VI), before the snow hit them as well.
