I am looking for a partner for a ski descent of an over 6500m high peak in central Pamirs, Tajikistan. It is the highest unskied mountain in former USSR. I attempted the descent in 2009m, but had to abort due to a team member requiring evacuation. The mountain is remote, and accessed from the beautiful Bartang valley. I have friend there, whioch makes it logistically easy. Difficulty is about TD, with 50°+ . High-altitude experience preferred.
I live in Austria and Vancouver, and hope to be in Georgia (Caucasus) in May. I have done several ski descents from 5000-7000m peaks, among them two first descents in Pamirs (Lap Nazar) and Tien Shan (Pik Pobedy East). This would be my fourth Pamirs trip.
If interested, please send email.
