Alam kooh in Iran

Alam kooh summit ( 4851m ) is the second highest mountain in Iran and obviously the most technical mountain . The north face and west face of the summit consist of granite technical routes and walls which accept many experienced climbers each year !

Snowman Trek in Bhutan


I'd like to see if anyone has any idea about companies that are offering snowman trek tour in Bhutan starting sometime during May 2016.

Most tour operators are departing Sep/Oct which is the high season but those dates don't work for me. I know for a fact that there are companies that leave earlier starting End of April but couldn't find anyone departing May.

Would appreciate all the help I could get.

does people climb chulu east / west in summer?

Or ...

Looking for some friends from Passu Pakistan. Where are you?


So, in about July of 2015 I was in Passu and met a few English fellas that had just climbed a previously unclimbed six thousand metre peak.
One was an Irish bugger that was an engineer on yachts, the other was a guide called Pete and then there was another bloke that I believe is a user here!
Where are you all?
Wouldn't mind an alpine catch up.
