April 2012 :: Nepal :: Annapurna

AAC members Jon Miller, Gavin Anstey, Ben Clark and I attempted to climb and ski Pisang peak and Chulu west peak in the Annapurna range of the Himalayas in late April/early May of 2012. 

We had three weeks to climb both peaks and were unable to summit either one because of a combination of conditions and our groups risk acceptance levels.  Due to the tight timeline we didnt have extra days to mount second attempts though we did get some great turns in on both peaks and are pretty sure we were the first to descend on skis on both peaks!  We were about 1,000 feet from the summit on both peaks when we turned around.  More info on the trip is at www.skithehimalayas.com
