South Georgia '05

With a change of team, this was to some extent a continuation of 05/11, using Gambo to access South Georgia. The bad weather continued, with a pressure drop to 930mb causing 'unbelievable winds'. In 13 days on Mount Paget (2,996m) they only experienced two weather windows, each of about six hours. Both attempts to reach the summit were unsuccessful, but they did achieve the first ascent of its subsidiary peak (c2,100m), which they named Buzen Point.
