British Yukon Expedition 2011

This 2-man team was making a return visit to the Yukon with the hope of exploring and making first ascents of peaks of 3000m to 4000m close to the confluence of the Walsh and Denis Glaciers. Unfortunately, they struck a period of extremely bad weather, making it impossible for the ski plane to land in the chosen area. They therefore decided to relocate to a spur of the Stairway Glacier which they had visited in 2009, in the hope that conditions would be more reasonable. Unfortunately they weren’t and although they did manage to make the (probable) first ascent of Peak 3450m, they also spent several days confined to camp, before calling for early evacuation.
