The summit tower of Mt. Waddington, just after we had climbed it, taken from the NW Summit. So often the highest peak in a region is far from the most impressive. I love that Wadd, the highest peak [completely] in BC, is a difficult, technical climb from any side, and, in my opinion, one of North America's most grand peaks. Photo by Mark Bunker.

South Face of the unclimbed Khangri Shar (6811m), the prominent pyramid to the right, is truly magnificent.
The only wonder, no one cares because just slightly to the right of this picture there is a giant mountain that raises itself to 8848m  Ever heard the expression: Can't see the foredt for the trees?
One is so absord in a detail that you don't see the overall picture. I remember when I was here for the first time. Everest was on my agenda then. I hardly glanzed at Khangri Shar. Of course, I needed the focus back then, to climb Everest safely. But this time with exploration in my mind, this place was a complete different experience.

Orange flowers for the mountaineer Davide Chiesa who married his Renata at the foot of the Ama Dablam . Before the ceremony the two bride and groom have climbed the mountain; the first time at such a high altitude for her, who approached the highlands only a few years ago. A passion that was galeotta, in fact that's how they met.

Unfortunately, the first Himalayan peak did not enjoy it because of the cold. But so much satisfaction and happiness, but that was nothing compared to the later: in the village of Pamboche David and Renata were married with a Buddhist rite . " Besides, what's more beautiful than getting married under a sacred mountain after climbing it?

Finding a safe route up on our main objective, the unclimbed Khangri Shar 6811 m, was easier said than done. Google earth only give you an idea of the mountain. To climb it, you can't plan from a living room with wi-fi, you actually have to live the real world. Believe it or not!
