Off to Pakistan!

Hey All,

Whit and I are off to Pakistan on Wednesday, for a crack a Latok's North Face (above photo). We're very excited for the trip and can't wait to get over there and give 'er! The last couple months I've been busy preparing and training. Getting up to Rocky Mountain National Park to climb on the Diamond and Ships Prow (whipper photo on left), a quick trip to Alaska's Kichatna Spires (top-left photo), and lots of climbing running around home to get into the best shape possible. Pascal and Mike have decided to send along filmmaker Chris Altrin to document our trip, so hopefully we'll return with some great climbing stories and a bit of eye candy to share. I owe Mike, and especially Ian, a hearty thanks for making this trip a financial reality for Whit and me! Hope you all have a great start to your fall. I'll be in touch as soon as I'm home in October.
