Re: !!

Glad you like this photo Deb! We were treated to views of this stunning peak from several directions during our trek in, and on several acclimitization climbs. Just fantastic from all angles! It has only received a couple of ascents at most, with the FA being just a few years ago, when the peak was first opened for climbing.

By the way, welcome home from your latest tour in Iraq. Thanks for your continued dedication and service.
