    Well... the most comfortable sleeping is downhill in your own bed, isnīt it?

    To the subject: we do not sleep in the camp 3 which is 6800m, as itīs too cold and might be too windy there. We do a climb of more than 1200 m (from the camp 2 on 6300m) in one day, roughly 10 hrs walk up.

    Doesnīt seem similar to me. This company offers an ascent, as quite few companies do in Kashgar and abroad. And quite expensive one (thatīs common for foreign companies). I work with local agencies, which headquarters are in Kashgar and Bishkek, and they charge less.
    What we offer is a tour and it includes Kyrgyzstan. They offer just an ascent.

    The odd thing is that I've spent a lot of time on message boards like this and have never seen a post like this looking for people to sign up for an expedition.

    Well, each thing happens for the first time, right? Why I do it this way - this expedition is not a permanent product of some company. Itīs just a single trip. Even though itīs not absolutely unique (thereīre similar offers from local agencies), this itinerary was combined just for one group in August. I donīt think we gonna repeat it. Myself, I work in Kyrgyzstan on the Sil Road. My friend-uigur is a guide on Muztagh-ata. As thereīs little time till August, I use different means to spread information around.

    I can dream but in reality this adventure is beyond what my 50 something body is up for.Sometimes one must live some things through others eyes.I have just viewed a little through yours.Thanks for doing that.
