Regular Craggy climber and all-round adventurer, Drew Cook, is part of a small team from the British Alpine Club that have just made 2 first ascents in the Eastern Karkoram in Ladakh Northern India.

‘Lak Kangri’ (Eagle Ice Peak) 6266m (Alpine AD) and ‘Thrung-Ma Kangri’ (Protector Ice Peak) 6341m (Alpine AD).

All members of the party are safe and well. They’re currently resting in Leh, the capital of the province, before returning home to the UK soon.

Watch this space for an interview about this expedition with Drew coming soon.

He goes away on another expedition to Nepal in mid October so we’ll be speaking to him as soon as he’s back home and settled in.

Drew climbs regularly with us on Tuesday evenings – well, when he’s not away in the mountains that is! Feel free to say hello and have a natter if you see him. He used to also work as an instructor for us in the early days so who knows, he might have even taught you to climb!

Drew, we wish you and the rest of the team a safe journey home and look forward to hearing about all of your adventures.
