The Altai: 2012 Expedition

CommunityJames Hipkiss

A team of four former Bristol University mountaineers will be visiting the South Chuyski Range of the Altai Mountains in southern Siberia this summer.

This rarely visited region of the world holds a magnificent array of alpine summits and we plan to explore, climb and summit mountains over a three week period in August 2012. The expedition has been made possible thanks to support from the MEF, BMC, Berghaus, the Alpine Club. Alpkit Buffwear.
