Great TR Anthony, I envy your powers of acclimatisation!
Thanks, Mike! No special powers of acclimization to brag about here - I suffered greatly above 8000m and spent 4 months cycling through the Karakoram and two previous 7000m peaks along that journey :)
Patience and respect with acclimization is key!
Dude.. this was an awesome read! You are truly an inspiration and one of my heroes! Way to persevere and crush it! \m/
Great adventure indeed! Great read! An armchair adventure for today's Covid lockdown, thanks! In 1986-89 I cycled west china and climbed Manaslu to the summit plateau. Our team of 6 were alone on the hike in and climb. So different now. xox Keith
Glad you enjoyed in these physically boring times. Where did you start for this adventure, exactly? Sounds amazing! Do you have a writeup?!
I started in Tashkent Uzbekistan with my bike, but only made it as far as Gilgit, Pakistan before I gave up on the cycle. Much different now. It's a 'hardcore tourist destination' at this point. I'd be so stoked if you could share your experience. All the best.
