Have you ever set off for a climb without knowing exactly what you were going to climb? Or even where you were going? Chris Wright and Graham Zimmerman, 2016 Mazama Bob Wilson Grant recipients, did just that a few months ago. They will share their recent experience in Pakistan with us tonight, in addition to discussing some of their previous exploits in the mountains as a team.
With plane tickets and visas in hand they hopped a plane to Pakistan with luggage full of climbing gear, unsure of what their actual destination would be (their carefully crafted climbing plan had to be scrapped due to the whims of the government). Yet they were certain they were headed to a grand adventure and were ready to tackle anything that came their way.
