The team completed the first ascent of Changi Tower's (6500m) North Ridge (M6 5.10 A2, 600m). Steve, twice their age, had been on fifteen expeditions to the Karakoram Range over the past thirty-five years. This was Scott and Graham's first trip to the area. After completing the FA Steve bowed out, leaving the duo to climb the main objective. the first ascent of the Southwest Ridge (M6 90 degrees, 1800m) of K6 West (7040m).

After a three-day push, Scott and Graham summited K6 West in Pakistan’s Karakoram on August 20th, having completed a new route up the mountain’s Southwest face.

The expedition was supported by the American Alpine Club's Lyman Spitzer Cutting Edge Award. Huge thanks to Exped and Outdoor Research for helping bring this presentation to the public.
