Welsh Big Wall Madagascar

This would appear to be the first application that the MEF has ever received for an expedition to Madagascar, whose mountains, whilst not particularly 'high', are largely unexplored. In particular, the Tsaranoro Massif in the Andringitra National Park lacks 'natural' lines so consequently has many unclimbed walls of over 800m. The team made repeat ascents (fIrst British) of four existing routes, plus a new 500m route 'Always the Sun' on the N Face of Karambony at E6 7c+.
