Leeds Gangotri Expedition

This four-man team attempted the first ascent of the unnamed W summit (6,504m) of Satopanth as their fIrst Himalayan experience. After a bivouac at 5,800m, with continuous avalanches nearby, they decided to retreat in the face of poor unseasonable weather in mid-September.
