Scottish Himalayan 1997

From the summit of the Kullu Eiger in 1996 (96/24) this leader spotted The Throne, rising to 5,840m above the Parbati Valley, and thus the present expedition was spawned. An attempt on the very steep and dangerous NE Face reached 5,400m with climbing to ED, E1/2, Scottish III, A2 before the weather forced a retreat. The long N Ridge proved to be a more practical option, and was climbed direct to the top at Scottish II/III, with an enormous overhanging cornice guarding the summit.
