The Bristol Nun Kun Expedition

This 7-man team was led by Steven Berry, whose father had made an early attempt on the E ridge of Nun, including (in the International Year of the Disabled) the indomitable Norman Croucher, who has two artificial legs below the knee. Six of the group, in two parties, succeeded in reaching the summit of Nun (7,135m) on 19 and 22 June. Norman Croucher's outstanding achievement in climbing White Needle Peak and going on to a height of 6,700m on Nun itself will be an encouragement to all disabled climbers.
