Ice-climbing in India (Spiti Valley, HP)
Trip report of a 2 weekexploratoryice-climbing trip to Spiti in January. I use the word exploratory because hardly anyone in this remote area had heard of ice-climbing!

Adventure on Tour Ronde North Face
This is one of those adventures that you unknowingly or unwillingly get into, but feel so happy and proud of when you come out of it unscathed! Ron is an Israeli climber with about 8 years of climbing experience in the US, and had done North faces up to TD- in the Alps. I am relatively raw, with just over a year of climbing...
