UK Hindu Kush 1999 (Saraghrar)

Although attempted by five students from Oxford in 1958, Saraghrar (7,349m) was first climbed in 1959 by an Italian party approaching from the east. The present team hoped to make the first British ascent by a new route from the Northern Cwm of the Rosh Gol Glacier. However, after reaching a height of 5,200m they decided that the couloir was too dangerous to continue. An attempt by the S Ridge was stopped by heavy snow (and a shortage of time) at 5,500m.
