UK-New Zealand, Mount Foraker, Alaska

This two-member team reconnoitred Mt Foraker from the Kahiltna glacier side, abandoned attempts on both the NW ridge and Cassin ridge of Mt McKinley, but joined the standard W buttress route via Denali Pass to reach the summit of Mt McKinley. A manned medical station was visited at 4,300m: it exists to collect data on high-altitude sickness and to provide a 'haemoglobin oxygen saturation' service to passers-by.
