'RE 200' Exercise Total Enigma: Upper Shaksgam

This inter-service team of 10 (7RE, 2RA, lRM), mounted by the Royal Engineers' Mountain and Exploration Club, made a photographic survey of the Upper Shaksgam valley. After several attempts on 'Mt Crown' (7,295m), said to be the third-highest unclimbed mountain (?), from a camp at 6,670m, they were obliged to retreat.
