Khunjerab pass, Pakistan
---
Despite dropping temperatures & possible snow we will head north for 4? days to tackle (hopefully) Khunjerab pass at 4693m above sea level and explore valleys in Gilgit-Baltistan. I think that this part of the trip @sarkababicka will be sooo happy for Suzi and I'll be freezing ❄️ most of the time 🤔

"Rage, rage against the dying of the light." Dylan Thomas. Evening light illuminates our camp on the second successful ascent of Peak 6250, Shimshal, Pakistan. We tried for weeks to push the route up Distaghil Sar, but were unable to navigate the complexities of the terrain, and settled for this ascent instead. I am still haunted by the loss of our climbing partner Ben Cheek, who dissapered on the mountain only a few days after this image was taken. #aplinelight #alpenglow #wintercamp -

The “death bridge” in Shimshal is much more than a connection to the Mulingdi glacier. #DiscoverPakistan #Pakistan.
It’s a symbol of how much a bunch of inspired people can do to empower Pakistani young people and, even more important, women.
@mirza_climb and @arshadjon built the bridge in 2010, and since then it’s been used to reach the glacier where Pakistan Youth Outreach Foundation organizes ice climbing trainings and competitions, with the aim to empower young people and women through adventure sports activities. The scope goes way beyond an ice climbing course. It’s a way to provide self-confidence, motivazione, and inspiration.

The Core of Braldu Glacier - Shimshal side of Lupke La, Pakistan
Travelling Details:
Co-ordinates: 36° 7'45.29"N, 75°51'53.66"E
Braldu is one of the remotest glaciers in North of Pakistan with an approximate length of 35 km. There is no direct approach to the glacier and either one has to cross Snow Lake and Lupke La pass from Baltistan side or has to go over Shimshal Pass from Shimshal side to reach this glacier.

This shot was taken on third day on Braldu glacier and this part was towards end of lower crevasse filled area. The terrain was very tough to move on and was taking lots of time to go up, down, sideways, around the blocked areas either due to ice walls or crevasses. After this section came a long walk on relatively flatter upper white glacier till we stopped near high camp area after sunset.
