I’ve been hankering after something bigger for a while now and it is with great excitement that I announce my up and coming plans for this October and November. Myself, Gavin Pike and James Clapham (of colton/macintyre brethren) have laid plans to head out to Nepal for a 6 week climbing trip with the main objective being the unclimbed 1800m North Spur of Talung (7,349m) near Kangchenjunga.
We have already received a great deal of support from various climbing grants which are hugely helpful and welcome. The contributors so far include the Mark Clifford Memorial Award, Nick Estcourt Award, Alpine Club, Mount Everest Foundation and the British Mountaineering Council.
We will be setting up a blog for the trip soon so be sure to follow it when it arrives.
