Vic-Saunders, Catherine-Destivelle and Mick Fowler (credit:piotrdrozdzphoto)
Speaking before leaving for Sersank, Mick commented: “Working with Eric on the book brought Vic and I back together again and reminded us that we haven’t climbed as a team for far too long. That sowed the seeds for this year’s Himalayan reunion trip and we are both looking forward to this latest adventure with great anticipation. Attempting a first ascent in a remote location with an old friend – what’s not to get excited about?”
As soon as Mick makes contact on returning to the UK, we will share full details of the expedition, along with images. For now, I have attached a couple of photos – one of the pair on the summit of Spantik in 1987 and one of them with Catherine Desteville, whose company published Les Tribulations.
