The Stok Kangri team will be leaving for Delhi tonight. We are all pack and ready to hit the trails.
Here is one sharing on the trekking boots.
This is a crampon compatible trekking boots. It is most suitable for trekking in the alps where crampons maybe required at elevations around 2000m and above. I will be using it for the upcoming climb on Stok Kangri. As this is now the summer season in the Stok Range, this boot will serve well at that elevation. It is waterproof and breathable. I have used it on my approach trek on Ama Dablam (6812m), Island Peak (6189m), Mt Damavand (5612m), and base camp treks. Attached to the boot is the very versatile Grivel G12 crampon. It has been up on Mt Everest, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Aconcagua, Island Peak, and Ice climbing with me. Picking the right equipment will help you to avoid having to make unnecessary purchases.
Incredible India, here we come.
