About the header photo

This is part of a panorama shot from the summit of Gasherbrum II (8035m) in Pakistan. The glacier is the Baltoro, heading west and down to civilization. The big peak to the left is Masherbrum. The peak behind my name is Gasherbrum IV, 7900m and very technical. The peak above the email address is Broad Peak (8051m). And on the far right, K2 (8611m). You can also see the Trango Group, The Latok Group, and Mustagh Tower.





Here you'll find anything related to my Minnesota/Wisconsin climbing guide, as well as any other stuff not related to high altitude. For that info, click the book cover to the left.
