Don't know about the DNA but we did have a pretty good work ethic.

Understated as usual.

The ones who really have been there and done that usually are.*

Everyone is rooting for you. May your trip be blessed!


*Not sayin' I'm in that company - just an observation.

I just saw Donini's slide show at COR last Monday; it was quite good. It was fun to see a generator powered slide show outdoors at the group cam. It started after sunset, so it kept me awake past my 9 PM bedtime but it was worth it.

Well done, nice accomplishment

"Latok I North Ridge line by Livingstone, Česen and Strazar
Natalie Berry - UKC13th August
This has been read 1,984 times

A British-Slovenian team consisting of Tom Livingstone, Aleš Česen and Luka Strazar have made the coveted first ascent of Latok I's north ridge (7145m) in the Pakistan Karakoram. According to early reports from the team, they opted for a safer line on the face in the last quarter, rather than risking an integral ascent of the ridge. The ascent took 7 days from Base Camp to Base Camp. More details on their line to follow.

A brief message posted on the Choktoi 2018 expedition page on the Planinska Zveza Slovenije (Slovenian Mountain Union) website reads:

Aleš, Tom and Luka returned to the base a few hours ago, we climbed a new route on the north ridge and went to the top of Latok 1. Next ... sleep."

I just saw Jim's slide show on this. I am assuming he was over there when it happened. I know he has talked to several of the teams. Congrats to those guys and to Jim and his mates for such great climbing lore.
