Miyar Nala 2006

Although the original objectives of this team lay above the Jangpar valley, stomach problems persuaded them to seek an area with (hopefully) safer water. They moved south to the Dali valley from which they made the first ascent of Goya Peak (5,230m) via its 600m north ridge (Alpine grade D-, French 5c). They also attempted the first ascent of Gateway Ridge leading to the summit ridge of a rock peak (c5,650m) near Dali on which they reached 5,600m with some simul-climbing but also pitches up to 5.9 (HVS).
