Malcolm Bass: NW Ridge of Gangstang
Contact Derek Buckle
Tuesday 14 February 2017
 In June 2016 Malcolm Bass and Guy Buckingham accomplished the first ascent of the impressive NW ridge of Gangstang (6,162m), a Matterhorn-like peak in the Himachal Pradesh Himalaya. Making a five day round trip from base camp to base camp they graded the challenging 1,500m rock and mixed route as ED1. This talk will describe their classic adventure on this pyramidal mountain.
