The South African/Dutch Chogolisa expedition 2004

In July and August of this year a small Expedition comprising ten members of the Mountain Club of South Africa who have teamed up with two members of the NKBV, the Dutch National Mountaineering Federation, will attempt to climb Chogolisa, one of the major peaks in the Karakoram.

Chogolisa, the expeditionís selected objective is a beautiful free standing 7668m high ice peak in the upper Baltoro region that has only been climbed eight times before. The last successful ascent was done in 1987.

The expedition will attempt either the mountainís Southwest Ridge or its North face, both accessed from a base camp on the Vigne glacier. Both of these routes have been climbed before, but neither of them often nor easily.
