Andy Houseman and I have just returned from the Hinku Valley in Nepal where we were hoping to try a new route on Kyashar, a 6770 metre mountain that has only had one ascent.
The weather didnt play the game so we opted for the West Ridge, a line that had only previously had one ascent.
Covered in deep snow we chose to by-pass the rock pillar by traversing out onto the West Face... MISTAKE.
Here is a short clip of film of what no-one at nearly 6000m and way out from anywhere wants to do and in some pretty bad conditions.
For pics and words of the attempt go to nickbullock-climber.co.uk/

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
