http://www.daniarnold.ch/news/2014/6/14/expedition-latok-1 -- Dani Arnold -- Switzerland -- Preparing for unclimbed Latok 1
Soon we go :-)

Long have we prepared ourselves for our big project. We will be traveling for about two months after Pakistan. Goal is the unclimbed north face of Latok 1 We (M ario Walder, Thomas Huber Alexander Huber and me) we're thrilled. 

It will not be easy, the respect for this mountain is big. But with such good friends to be on the road to have a common goal, is just awesome. And one thing is certain: the fun is certainly not too short! 

I'll try to put something new on my homepage or twice. 

I wish you all a good summer and best regards 
Dani
