In reply to UKC News: well done Scott, Dunc and the rest of the team, inspiring stuff and well deserved. Now we all know climbing in the greater ranges is merely practice for grit bouldering so see you back here soon!

In reply to UKC News: It's really awesome to see people climbing 8000 meters in good style like this.

Congratulations on both the summit and the style, Scott!

Good effort by the team, a shame JR couldn't add to his haul of 8s: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=456688&v=1#x6374756

Does the head (general secretary) of the Pakistan Alpine Club not have a name?

Thanks, can try again soon... Still ticking the others off.

His name is Karakoram Santa or Saad Tariq Siddiqi
In reply to UKC News: If he's the 9th Brit, can someone fill in the gaps in my knowledge about the others. I was actually surprised it was only 9 that had done it. I'm guessing a larger number have made it to the foresummit though...

I'm assuming I'm right in thinking:
Andy Parkin
Al Rouse
Doug Scott
Julie Tullis...
who else?

p.s. good effort!
In reply to Tom Chamberlain:

Al Hinkes, presumably?

Very refreshing. Nice one to the whole team.

In reply to UKC News: Did an iron not get packed for the meet-and-greet..? Fantastic effort to all involved. A great story.

I enjoyed the article's slant - having personally never done anything this big I can however relate to the easily overlooked success of keeping the team togetherness during/following an expedition.
