Guy Robertson and Ez Tresidder concentrated on the SE face of Kyzyl, getting about halfway up the steepest alpine ice route either had ever seen on their second attempt. Both attempts were thwarted by dramatic thawing whenever the sun hit the ice.
Blair Fyffe and Neal Crampton climbed two new alpine routes on peaks around Kyzyl Asker. First up was the North face of Pic Babushka (c5300m), a beautiful alpine snow/ice face with about 700m of climbing up to Scottish V, climbed in a day. hey then moved to the glacier below Kyzyl Asker and climbed the North ridge of the steep point 4850, making the first ascent of the mountain and renaming it Cathedral Peak. This again gave about 700m of climbing, the crux being well protected VI. The team would like to thank Mountain Equipment for their support.
