I'll be transferred to my office in Mazar e Sharif in north Afghanistan for 2 years from January. If anyone knows any good contacts in Kabul or Mazar for a) rock climbing b) weeks in Wakhan Corridor c) winter climbing please let me know.
cheers

In reply to andrewm1000:
Have a word with Alan Curr at Wild Frontiers 020 7736 3968. They organised the trek I did up the Wakhan last year. He will be able to tell you who to contact in Ishkashim and who not to go with. Yar Mohammad was one of our guides and if you can find the famous Amin Beg you will have one of the regions hardest workers on your team.

Some other local contacts are listed here

Get a copy of Peaks of Silver and Jade by Pinelli which gives a good set of mountaineering routes you can do from the Wakhan.
