No, it wasn't our 2011 trip that was "doomed to disaster", but the 1913 expedition, about which I wrote in an early post before our departure in 2011.  I'm posting this a bit belatedly I'm afraid, but Tom Rowley of The Telegraph, which sponsored the 1913 expedition, did get in touch with me, then with my old school mate, Mark Hodgkin, whose grandfather was on the 1913 expedition.  It makes a great read....
