Day Canyon, day two in Moab. Another #twotowerday with @markhammondtheguide. 1 and 2: Bootleg Tower. The photos don’t do it justice: one of the best tower pitches I’ve ever led. 3 and 4: The unique, wild, and quite hard Boognish Tower, a 15-bolt 5.10 chimney! 5: Just happy it’s about to be over. My legs will hurt for days. 6: Sunlit Bootleg in center left and Boognish in shade on far left.

At 9:30 am on November 12th, we staggered to the top of Ama Dablam.
Exhilarated to have reached the Summit after so many years of dreaming and grateful to be down safely and resting.
I could not ask for a better team than @charley.mace @highersummits @timmyoneill @dokpamehla @nyma_tshering.
More to come about our epic adventure. For now . . . food, water and sleep!

https://rppd.blogspot.com/2019/11/avalanche.html -- Attempt on peaks in the Sathophant Valley (Himalayas) by Daniela Taxeira and Paulo Roxo
Footnote: This was our second expedition in Sathophant valley. The first, was in 2010, when we accomplished the second ascent of Ekdant (6100m) by a new route, and the first ascent of Kartik (5115m). This time, we found the mountains extremely dry and dangerous, with rocks falling everywhere. High temperatures also influenced the remaining snow, as on our attempt on Balakun (6471m), triggering the unsuspected snow avalanches we witnessed, ultimately causing our failure.
Just by curiosity, here is two photos showing the contrast between 2010 and 2019.

Nikita Balabanov. An attempt to climb Annapurna III -- English translation available
Nikita Balabanov:
"Remember, a month ago I wrote that I would see you in a month? So it's time to talk about our recent adventures :)
Perhaps many have seen a cool documentary about the attempt of the team of David Lama and to climb the crest of Annapurna III in the SE. For myself, I noted this line even earlier, after an attempt by the British team 9 years ago.
In general, we decided with Mikhail Fomin and Vyacheslav Polezhayko to try our hand at this unique line.
Why unique? Because these are 3 vertical kilometers, stuffed with completely different types of complex terrain: waterfall ice, vertical snow, openwork snow ridges, a cool mix, ITO as on the Crimean sixes and tropilovo to the waist, if completely boring)))
In general, the mountain checked us as best it could: )
Startanuli after snowfalls, and although the odds were given on one day of good weather, the mountain did not have time to clean. I had to fight for several days in vertical snow with poor insurance. As a result, the key part began later than expected. On the sixth day, I realized that I had small frostbite on my legs, and decided not to aggravate. We finished somewhere at 6300-6350 and went down for another two days. Was it difficult? - Yes!
Will we be back? - Definitely!

UPDATE- On Nov 7 around 2:30pm Sequoia and Kings National Park located Alan Stringer deceased at the top of the Darwin glacier, near the base of the notch to go up Mount Darwin. Sequoia and Kings will be conducting the investigation and recovery.
NORTH LAKE (INYO NATIONAL FOREST), CA. November 7, 2019 – On November 4 (evening), Inyo County Sheriff’s Office received notification of a missing hiker. The reporting party said that Alan Stringer, a 40-year old man from Huntington Beach, had planned on hiking somewhere out of the Bishop area on Sunday but failed to return home on Monday.

Stringer, who was described as an experienced hiker, did not disclose his hiking plans or potential routes. However, he recently purchased and ice ax and crampons, and participated in mountaineering training courses. Stringer was equipped for day-hiking only; he had an InReach device that he hiked with, but it was never activated. After checking trailheads throughout the Bishop area, Sheriff’s Deputies located Stringer’s vehicle at North Lake shortly after midnight on Tuesday morning.
On Tuesday a forensic analysis of Stringer’s cell phone activity revealed only one call very early in the morning from downtown Bishop on Sunday November 3 (before his planned hike). Inyo Search and Rescue used aerial support to fly the areas near and around North Lake.
On Wednesday ground teams searched the areas of Piute Pass, Lamarck Col and Mt. Emerson. Aerial reconnaissance with night-vision capability was used Wednesday night.
Today ground teams will continue to scour the areas near and around North Lake, paying extra attention to Wonder Lake Basin, Lamarck Col, Mt. Lamarck summit, and Mt. Emerson. Aerial support will be used again today (H-40 out of Fresno). Sequoia and Kings National Park is running a joint operation concentrating on the following locations: Darwin Canyon and Mount Darwin.
If anyone from the public has seen Alan Stringer (particularly on Sunday November 3) and can provide us with a more conclusive hiking route please call 760-878-0383 option 4. We do not have a conclusive description of what he was wearing but he could potentially be wearing a bright green “puffer” style jacket or a dark green light-weight jacket. His ice ax is lime green. Stringer is 6’04”, 230 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.

@estebantopomena called us via satellite phone from the summit of Ama Dablam at 8am local time to announce "CUMBRE!!” 9 members of our team summited. Temps were cold but they had good conditions and outstanding clear views from the summit. The team is back in C1 for the night and will descend to base camp tomorrow. We can’t wait to hear more updates from them when they get back into wifi at Base Camp. Strong work team💪💪

We at the AAC are deeply saddened to share the news of the tragic death of member, climber, and friend Michelle Xue. Our DC Chapter Chairman David summarized—
"Sometimes you meet someone who is just special. Special in all aspects of their life, and they are on a mission to share those gifts with the world. Michelle Xue was one of these people. She absolutely lived her dreams and we lost her along with another climber, Jenny Shedden, to a rock-fall accident on Red Slate Mountain in the Sierra Nevada on Sunday, 10/27/2019.
We will miss Michelle and will always be greatful for her service to the AAC as the University Chapter Chairwoman while she was at Georgetown University.
We will have a memorial for Michelle in DC coming up soon. Please stay tuned. I thank you, Michelle, for all you brought to the world and all you did for the AAC while you were here. Rest in Peace."
-David Giacomin
