climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Mick Fowler, b. 1956, Great Britain

1995

The Fowler-Littlejohn Route, Tawoche 6542m, Nepalese Himalaya, first ascent, ED, 43 pitches, with Pat Littlejohn

I first became aware of [Tawache] from a photograph in the 1991 North Face catalogue. “East Faces are pretty inspiring too…” said the caption. I couldn’t help but agree.


1993

Cerro Kitshwar 6200m, Kashmir, first ascent, route VI A3, with Stephen Sustad

Including the 1989 fiasco, I’d spent ten weeks of my life trying to climb this mountain: ten weeks in India and only four days upward climbing above bergschrund. On this trip alone we spent more time in Delhi dealing with bureaucracy than on the face. Was it worth it?  Strangely we concluded that it was. Mountaineering is like that. 


1991

Ultra 1 (7388m) SW face, Karakoram, attempt, with Crag Jones (reached 6500m)

Hunza Peak 6200m, Karakoram, first ascent, with Crag Jones

1990

Ak-Su 5355m, Pamir-Alay, Turkestan Range, northwest buttress, new route, with Christopher Watts


1989

Cerro Kishwar 6200 m, Kashmir Himalaya, attempt, with Mike Morisson
 

1988

Ak-Ayuk 3700m, Altai Range, fourth ascent of the north face, with Duncan Tunstall, Philip Thomas, Paul Allison

Belukha 4506 m, Altai Range, normal route, with Duncan Tunstall, Philip Thomas, Paul Allison

Delone 4200m, Altai Range, Tomsk Ridge, first Western ascent, with Duncan Tunstall, Paul Allison


1987

Spantik 7027m, Karakoram, Golden Pillar, new route, with Victor Saunders

At 7027 meters our goal was achieved, everything suddenly seemed worthwhile – form the masochism of the last six and half hours to the bureaucratic hurdles of the last eighteen months.


1986

Ushba 4710m, Caucasus, west face, new route, with Victor Saunders


1984

Bojohagur 7329m, Karakoram, attempt, with Chris Watts


1983

Kilimanjaro, Western Gully,  first ascent, with Caradoc Jones

Basically, we failed to walk up it. I was a bit demoralized, I must say, but more than anything I thought we’d chosen the wrong route.


1982

Taulliraju 5830m, Codrillera Blanca, south wall, new route, with Chris Watts

Alan Rouse suggested Peru since it meant we could get there in our annual holidays. All we needed was an objective. My girlfriend’s father had a calendar on his wall with picture of a mountain called Taulliraju.
