Nyainqêntanglha: My ‘Holiday’ in Tibet  -  Paul Ramsden

Last October Paul (three times winner of the Piolet d’Or) and climbing all-rounder Nick Bullock made the first ascent of a 1600m, ED+ route up the tongue-twisting North Buttress of Nyainqêntanglha's South East Face (7046m) in Tibet. Although both are accomplished and highly respected mountaineers, this was the first time the pair had climbed together.
