More on the Miyar Valley, India

In November, we posted a brief entry and video on Camilo Lopez and Anna Pfaff’s latest first ascents in the Miyar Valley of the Indian Himalaya. This month, The American Alpine Journal published Camilo’s account of the two new routes the couple established in August 2010.

For those not familiar with The American Alpine Journal, it has been published annually since 1929 by the American Alpine Club and is internationally respected as the leading publication documenting the world’s most significant climbs. From Alaska to Nepal, each year all of the new big mountain routes in the world (except the Alps) are covered in its Report section, making the AAJ the ‘go-to book’ for alpinists and explorers.
