Right now I'm in Islamabad Pakistan along with my good friend Timmy DeRoehn. We're on our way to the Charakusa Valley. This valley is an alpine wonderland filled with infinite granite spires and alpine objectives. We have our sights set on the southwest pillar of K7 west, a 6,200m unclimbed granite spire capped with snow and ice. Tomorrow we catch a plane to Skardu along with our luggage and then it's onto Hushe and then a 2 day trek into the mountains. Our journey here has been pretty insane with us shelling out over $500 in overweight charges flying for almost 2 days!
We'll be posting updates on the Outdoor Research Verticulture site here:
