Diarrhea and Sunstroke in the Kokshaal-Too
Jugging the lines up to Camp 3. "Hidden amongst the rich climbing treasures of the western Kokshal Too, with an unspoilt view over the vast wilderness that forms the western fringes of China, lies the awesome Southeast Face of Kyzyl Asker. I desperately want to climb that face..." Guy Robertson wrote in the 2003 AJ. Robertson traveled to the mountain in 2002 with Neal Crapton, Blair Fyffe and Es Tressider to attempt their dream of climbing the 1300m northwest face alpine-style. "Dreams are a bit like sugar. They're a great source of energy. They're an integral part of what makes us 'alive,'" Robertson wrote of the expedition. [Photo] Evrard Wendenbaum
