Cruising in Kyrgyzstan | Rock Magazine

Mountaineering expeditions are not meant to be relaxing. They are meant to involve hardship and pain, near misses, a touch of frostbite, starvation, dysfunctional group dynamics and high altitude pulmonary oedema. Fortunately our trip to Kyrgyzstan resulted in none of these, although there was the potential to get shot. Aside from gun-toting rebels, the trip was as relaxing as a high altitude climbing trip can be. At the end our team was still talking and we had climbed a dozen peaks, including a few first ascents.
