"An alpine style ascent of Tahu Ratum (6651m) is a particularly noteworthy and challenging objective, which will help raise the profile of British mountaineering." - Sir Chris Bonington - Expedition Patron.

Final Post: Over and Out

Appologies to any one who has checked, because this is long overdue. Hamish, Holly, Luke and I are safe and sound back in the UK. We had a brilliant time in Pakistan, but unfortunately were foiled by bad weather and we unable to climb Tahu Ratum.

I've written up an expedition report, which goes over our trip in detail. It can be found here.

Hamish has put in a lot of time and effort into producing this excellent video, which offers a good flavor of our trip:

A final huge thank you to any one and everyone who supported this summer, particularly the orgainisations that gave us grants, without your support we would have been unable to go to Pakistan last summer.
