climb a never before climbed Himalayan peak, inspired by Graeme Dingle's
Team out to climb peak
By MICHELLE ROBINSON
New Zealand could again see itself
parked in the mountaineering his-
tory books if an expedition to an
unclimbed Himalayan peak goes
Suitably named Rob Frost and
Ben Dare are teaming with Scott
Blackford Scheele and Andrei Van
Dusschoten which set out on
Sunday to make international his-

Ascending the 6800 metre peak
will put New Zealand back on the
map for mountaineering, Mr
Frost, a former Shore resident,
says. We're so excited.
We discovered Anidesha Chuli
in an old book that was written in
1976 by Graeme Dingle, who's a
bit of a hero for us.''
Mr Dingle, who climbed one of
the world's most formidable
mountains, the North Face of
Jannu at 7710m, met up with the
team in Albany where he runs the

When training I would run up
1000m in 60 minutes while a
friend of mine said he trained

Altitude is a great leveller, it's
about the years of training you
have done, not the recent train-
Also on hand to offer advice was
a climber from Sir Edmund Hil-
lary's generation, Norman Hardie.
Mr Hardie climbed the world's
third highest peak Kangchen-
junga in 1955 in what would have
been a completely different
experience from what is involved
today, he says.
There have been enormous,
big, big changes in terms of the
types of equipment, food, fuel,
clothing and ability to communi-
cate with each other with the use
The latest expedition involves
three weeks at a base camp at
5000m in the Ramtang Valley.
Whereas Hardie was away from
home for five months, setting out
from Britain and sailing to Nepal,

These guys will be able to fly
and be taken by truck. It was
harder for us.''
But Mr Hardie also climbed
with the help of 30 porters, com-
pared with the latest small team
But a smaller team is no draw
back, Mr Dingle says.
Big expeditions are a pain.
The best expedition is with one
I've already listened to these
guys' plans and they're no differ-
ent from the plans Norman would
have worked out.
You have to look at the ridges
and faces and see where you can
camp and where avalanches can
occur, and go for it.''
