Its time to go back to Himalaya and have a go at the infamous North Ridge of Latok. We have tried to find out how the Giri-Giri boys have been doing but no news so far. No matter what the outcome is I think its one of the most beautiful mountains in the Himalayas and the potential for futuristic line seams endless.
If all goes to plan we will try the US (Lowe, Kennedy and Donini) line. We have planned for a long expedition and expect to wait for our shoot for quite some time so our huge Mountain Hardwear Space Dome will be filled with goodies and books. I cant wait to tie in under the huge and winding spur with my 5.10s on, knowing that its going to be some very long and exhausting days ahead.
The final preparations will include the current trip to the Dolomites and the Peuterey Integral on Mt Blanc so we arrive acclimatized to plus 4000 meters.
