Did you try Gash IV?

Will you post on Risk?

Yes, you're right. This is "Vlada" Skripko from Moskva. I don't know if he has posted anything on Risk.ru. He didn't attempt G IV, but G II. He reached Camp 2 due to bad weather and was forced to turn back. Do you want his contact info?

J, this is the south face, with the east face kind of visible on the right, in sunlight and cloud. The south face, esp the ridge on the left, has been attempted several times, no success.

Thanks TDT. It was a great morning. Warm and calm. Not the norm that season in the Karakoram.
