The team of Tim Church, Yvonne Pfluger, Graham Zimmerman and me…have been shortlisted for the 2012 Hillary Expedition Sparc Grants. For a mountain called Kampire Dior (7,100m) in NW Pakistan, up near the Afghan border. KD has been climbed once (about 40 years ago) from the west. We intend to climb it from the south. The biggest barrier is the icefall guarding the base of the mountain- will we be able to get up it?
Will know the outcome of the SPARC Grant in November i think?
