Thanks for the description. I wish to climb them all, but can you make them a little bit lower in elevation? about 4000 meters less? :) Sorry, for being silly. However, this photo shows the peaks very possible to climb, just the elevation (and weather) poses many difficulties.

Re: wow...

4000m lower? Then it would be necessary to downclimb then from the neighbouring villages in order to reach the top... :)

Re: wow...

yes, does not that sound great:) sleep in a warm house, having plenty of hot water and a nice fire - sorry, I guess I am a little bit lazy. :)
