Chris Chan Memorial Slideshow by Dylan Johnson
Siguniang Shan: First Ascents and Exploratory Alpinsm in China's Eastern Himalaya

Dylan will primarily be discussing the first ascent of the SW Ridge of Siguniang.

He will briefly fill in with some other recent climbing including other FAs in China, climbing in Patagonia, new routes in Alaska and the Bugbaboos and an attempt on Latok 1, but the bulk and focus of the presentation will be on Sigunaing - its a pretty entertaining story that goes well beyond the climbing itself.

The above photo is from day 6 of our climb on Siguniang.
The stats on that climb: 6250m peak, 9,200' tall ridge/route, 72 pitches, 5.11 A2 M5 WI3+, completed in 10 days alpine style.
"The route took 35 lbs from my body."

Colin leading perfect 5.10 handcrack on the sixth pitch, Red Pillar of Mermoz. Photo by Dylan Johnson

As mentioned above, Dylan may sneak in a few shots from his very recent trip to Patagonia.
This climb looks spectacular, too (at least 11 pitches, several are 5.11+).

this 5.10 hands looks good.
The only down downside is multi days approach

The two climbers encountered several sections of ridgeline which required them to straddle as they traversed. photo: Dylan Johnson
