Packing for the 2010 Latok Expedition

In the next two weeks we will nail dow the final details of our Latok Expedtion and ship out our gear and some goodies. Its still snowy at Baltoro and Hispar and given that we think a low snow year or low snow conditions is key to get a fair shoot at the North Ridge we will opt for a late departure and climb in to mid October. Hopefully we will be trading some lower temps for better snow conditions and cold but stable weather. Only guessing and hoping. Guess that this strategy will leave us quite lonely as most teams visiting Pakistan will be long gone when we arrive.

Training is going as planned and my motivation is starting to build for each day I look at the pictures of Latok and its mighty faces.
