Excellent backdrop!

This is just amazing, very impressive. I hope it was a excellent trip. I am envious. What kind of tent is that and how did it perfrom on the trip?

Re: Excellent backdrop!

Thanks Marlon - I've added it to the album. The tent is actually another climbers - but we used a North Face Mountain 25 and it worked out fine for the conditions (and I was happy to have the donkeys carry it!)
Cheers,
Howie
