Oxford University Tien Shan 2008

This team planned to explore and make alpine-style ascents from the Cholokkanchigai valley in the south-east corner of the Borkoldoy range, but when they arrived in Kyrgyzstan, they discovered that the access road had been washed away. They therefore based their expedition in a valley in the Dyandjiger range instead: from here they climbed nine (non-technical) peaks up to 4,818m, all believed to be first ascents.
