About Ramsden Subcamp

Last Updated on Tuesday 14th June 2022 at 1:17am by Ramsden Subcamp Team

This subcamp is named after Paul Ramsden – a climber from Yorkshire. The list of his ascents in the Himalayas is long. In 2016, he succeeded to climb, for the first time, through the extremely demanding North Face of the 7,046 meter high Nyainqentangla South in Tibet.

Despite the fact that the 48-year-old is not a professional climber, this performance earned him the Piolet d’Or award. This was the fourth time that he had received the “Oscar of the Climbers”; the others being in 2003 for opening up the North Face of Siguniang in China, in 2013 for the ascent of the Prow of Shiva in India and in 2016 for climbing Gave Ding in one of the remotest regions of Nepal.
