Hey guys
Sorry didnt come back and look here until today

New trip date
1-24 July 2006
Guided with Jon Otto and with summitclimb
http://summitclimb.com/mustagh_ata.htm

I have been chasing fares to Beijing and was aware of Malaysia airlines via Kuala Lumpa but direct is nicer. Qantas will prob have specials also. Atm they have Beijing ret $999 inc taxes but not out as far as my dates. They will release fares soon.

China Southern also has good fares but not that far out yet. They go via Ghanzhou to Beijing and also fly onto Urumqi and then to Kashgar. They also have a good fare to Kashgar and offer discounts for flying all sectors with them.

I was also considering via Islamabad but logistically may be to difficult and takes 4-5 days by bus

Here is a map, you can enlargen the local map

Any of you guys also interested. Would be nice to have a couple of Aussies as it seems hard to link up for these journeys.

Cheers
Roger

Are you talking about the west face route here, roger ? What are the guiding fees? What discounts are possible for a group etc etc.....
What is this "scientific method" you speak of?

Hi Dave
Traditional route climbing up the slope on the right (or south side) of the Kartamak glacier.

Please see this link

http://www.summitpost.org/mountains/pho ... te_id=6462

There may be the possibility of a discount if several of us go from Oz. The group size is now 7 from over the globe.

For an awesome pic of the mountain go to

It puts the climb into a little more perspective!!!

However the route shown is not the one I am going, it is to the right of the glacier as seen in the first link.

I cant wait. What do you reckon Dave, you up to it, any other Auzzies want to give it a go?

rogerc: "...Any of you guys also interested. Would be nice to have a couple of Aussies as it seems hard to link up for these journeys..."

rogerc, if you're still hoping to hook up with other Aussies, you could also post away at 'aussiemountaineers' to advertise your trip, or send me the details and I can post in the NZAC Australian Section Newsletter (due out soon) on your behalf...

I'm another aussie. I live in Perth, which as you know is a long way from any hills. I'm hoping to go work in Canada in the next 12 months to be a bit closer to some hills. I don't come here often but I was looking for some information on Pumori.

I'm sure I remember seeing a page for the bluff. I guess it died due to a lack of maintenance. Come to think of it I think I may know of the person that did the original one. If I see him around I'll give him a bit of a rev up.

Yeah mate, another Aussie here. Born and bred in Perth, WA.
I'm an avid trekker but not a mountaineer...but that's all going to change in the near future.

I spent a lot of last year trekking through the Pilbara, mostly for documentary film work and working with the Martu tribe elders. Good times.

Heading out to the Larapinta at the end of the year to do an End 2 Ender.

Good to see some fellow Aussies here :D
