The Great Karakorum Transverse

G'day all

Hope your all well and having fun.

I am in Bangkok on my way to Pakistan, I know a funny way to go from the UK to Pakistan, its a long story and I am not that fast at typing, just trust me.

Just a quick email before I leave for the airport.

I had a great but busy time in old blighty, manged to fit in a wet visit to the Alps which was nice. Now back to work.

I am leading probably one of the best treks you can do. It is the full transverse of the karakorum mountains in Pakistan. Have a look at

Really looking forward to it as it been a dream of mine to do this trip. It links 3 Glaciers crossing 2 high mountaineering pass to walk the full length of the Karakorum's. Pretty much from the India Himalayas to the junction of the Hundi Kush and Pamir ranges near Afghanistan. I have done the trek is 2 sections but never as 1 complete trek.

I will hopefully be sending updates via the Sat phone to my Twitter and Facebook status pages. Also the company I am leading for will be posting regular updates from me also.


I have quite a busy time in the next few months, after Pakistan I am going back to my beloved Mongolia to lead 2 climbing trips, and after that a bit of a holiday in China and plan to then get the Train to Tibet and cross the Himalayas to Nepal where I am leading a climb of Naya Kanga and another trip yet to be be decided, so busy times up to xmas.

Best go, wish me luck

All the best

Snowing in the Atlas

Hi all, Hope alls well in your part of the world.

Just back in the mountains for m y 4th yes 4th trip the the Atlas and Toubkal. First three trips have been very successful will 27 out 29 clients getting to the top. The 2 who didn't, didn't leave the mountian hut, so very successful.

Not sure about the success of this trip as there's is a few inches of snow here in the town of Imlil the gateway to Toubkal and high wings and heavy snow up on the mountain, but eh ho will give it a go.

I am off to the coastal town of Essiwera for a few days before returning to the UK and then onto Nepal for the Spring Season.

Take care and all the best
