Veravasht & its NE Ridgeline Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2007
Dense fog kept us in our tents on June 23 below the summit of Jir Asbi Ow Peak. The next day fog lifted but it was still cloudy. Climbed Usher and then Veravasht. We were wondering if we should descend the NE ridge to Keykoo Village. The lower parts of the ridgeline were hidden in fog. We dicided to chance it. Ran into steep nasty scree/rocky slopes between 3700-3000 m. That took a long time. Was late in the day when we reached the grassy parts of the ridgeline. Had almost run out of water. As we descended, we ran into the dense fog. Was not at all clear what laid ahead. By sheer luck came across a stream at 2460 m. Camped there. the next day, it was sunny and we continued our descend to the village of Keykoo.
