Pinnacle Club 1997 Karakoram

When climbing nearby in 1986, the leader spotted an attractive unnamed peak near to Shuwert in Shimshal, and determined to return to locate and climb it. This expedition was the result. Unfortunately Williscroft had to return home early owing to a recurrent chest infection, but the rest of the team made the first ascent of Rwadun Sar, 6,500m, via its badly corniced NE Ridge, and then of their basic target, Zarsanic I, 5,900m, via its long but not unduly difficult SW Ridge.

June - July 1997
