Boesam Pass Expedition 2017
In May 2017 after initial plans to visit the Yashkuk glacier to the East where thwarted by issues with permits Tim Seers, James Lawson, and Will Smith travelled to Shimshal in Northern Pakistan. A new plan to visit the Virjerab glacier to the east of Shimshal and make an attempt on the unclimbed peak of Khurdopin Sar also fell through after access the glacier was found to be impossible. We subsequently headed to Bosesam Pass area and made successful attempts on 3 previously unclimbed peaks below 6000m.
