Peak 41 Expedition

In October/November 2012 Jack Geldard and ROB GREENWOOD  will be on the Hongu Valley, Nepal on an expedition to attempt the first ascent of the North Face of Peak 41.
The mountain has only seen one ‘official’ ascent and this was via its more accessible south face by a Slovenian Expedition, this is to be the first attempt from the more remote north side.

Loben Expeditions - autumn expedition landed Lukla and heading for chamlang Base camp, from where a team of 06 will attempt CHAMLANG, PEAK 41  and HUNKU peak.

Team successful reached Lukla this morning though we had to use different means to get into Lukla, some by flight, some by helicopter and all the baggages' by MI -17. Naomi and Jill with Palden were booked to fly to Phaplu an alternative airstrip to Lukla but luckly weather at Lukla got clear and the flight landed at Lukla, which saved them 03 days of walking to get into Lukla.
