Mount Paget, Alladyce Range, North East Spur. In November 2003 a Spanish team including José Carlos Tamayo made a rare ascent of Mt. Paget (2,935m), the highest peak on the island of South Georgia and the highest on British soil. They repeated the North East Spur, first climbed in 1980 by a five-member French expedition led by Philippe Cardis (traveling in the yacht Basile) during the second ascent of the mountain. The Spanish ascent of Paget was probably the fifth.
