The expedition in the news

We will have more detailed posts up in the next week or so dealing with our time in Bishkek. In the meantime here are links to some accounts on the expedition from various sources.

A few websites have featured articles on the expedition. UKclimbing published this article, written by John and Robert.

Alpinist mentioned the trip in this article, dealing with mountaineering this year in Kyrgyzstan in general. The Torugart-too has seen a lot of action, evidently the revolution didn't put too many people off!

The BMC published this article on the trip.

Alpkit, a web based company making some really cool products, published an article by Robert on his and John's experience on Mur Samir. Alpkit made Robert's bivvy bag, his sleeping bag, his headtorch and his bright green synthetic jacket.

An account was published in Student newspaper, something that as Edinburgh University Mountaineering Club members we are delighted with as it is good publicity for the club.

As can be seen from these articles there is a great deal of interest in Kyrgyzstan, with many unclimbed peaks and many more unclimbed lines waiting for a first ascent.

Some light entertainment....Robert is putting together a film of the trip. Here is the trailer on youtube.

We would like to thank our sponsors, The Mountaineering Council of ScotlandThe Scottish Mountaineering Trust, The Sang Award and The Fabulous Bakin' Boys.
