Team hikes to Jhola

Hi Friends we walked to Jhola today along the Braldu river. 6 hours and great weather. We crossed a river by cable and pulley box and reached camp by 1:30pm. We are relaxing, reading, and enjoying our time with the local Balti and Hunza staff! Team is doing great so far!

Askoli

Hi everyone

Today we were able to jeep up to Askoli village in the Braldu river valley at 10,000 feet. About a 6 hour very bumpy but beautiful drive. Tomorrow we start our walk!
The village terraces are full of blooming buckwheat right now, beautiful. The local people are beginning their wheat harvest and the fields are busy.
We are very excited to leave the jeep behind and begin our human powered journey. Cheers for now

Eric and Dan

Thanks

Islamabad to Skardu

Hi Folks

Turning trips here in Pakistan and now getting our K2 basecamp trek up and running!
We flew from Islamabad to Skardu this morning, checked into our lodging at the Concordia motel and toured around town a bit after getting gear checks completed. We visited the 300 year old mosque and the 400 year old Karpacho Fort.
We are hoping for permission tonight from the Military to begin our all day jeep ride tomorrow up to Askole. From Askole we will leave the vehicles behind and start the trek!
We will join the immense Baltoro glacier after a couple of days and will reach K2 basecamp after about 7 days in the upper Baltoro.
Most of the cybercasts after today will be from my InReach, with brief update on our location and scenery. Once we get back I will post some photos from the journey.

Eric Murphy

Thanks

I had a great trip. Even if I hadn’t been able to summit I would sign up again in a minute. I am now considering the Eiger.

    By Dani Osman Getting your mountaineering kit dialed in can be a complicated, strenuous process – So many options! So many opinions! – and rarely is the process more stressful than when it comes to boots.

  • Training for Mountaineering Webinar

    Climbing big mountains requires incredible endurance. You don’t necessarily have to move fast, but you have to keep moving for hours, days–sometimes even weeks. Training to have an excellent aerobic base is critical, not just for that continued movement ability, but also for your body’s ability to recover, day after day. On January 30th, Senior […]

  • Women on Top: Expert Advice from a Mountain Guide Webinar & Tips

    There have historically been fewer women than men in mountain sports, but that statistic has been changing as more women establish first ascents, inspire others by summiting challenging peaks and find cohorts of other women climbers. At Alpine Ascents we are fortunate to have more than 25 female guides and offer dozens of women’s programs. […]
