Yes, very underrated as a climbing destination!
The settling tank idea was pretty cunning. How long does it take to completely clear?
It occurred to me that you might be able to get at clear water more quickly if you used a siphon tube rather than a bottom tap.
Nice work. Whereabouts were you located in the Pamirs? I'm sure the info is in the blog but I'm curious and short on time! I was in the Pamirs a couple weeks ago in between Bash-Gumbez and Alichur staying for three weeks with a hunter/herder named Orozbek (maybe you saw his massive roadside yurt with the sign saying FISH and YURT STAY?). I've got some pictures of fresh peaks in the Bazar Dara area and south of Bash-Gumbez. If you're curious drop me a line. So many titalating peaks running along the Gunt River eh!?
Yes it is, in earlier entries and the next entry :) We were in Muzkol range (funnily enough). If you go N on Pamir highway from Murgab then turn L just before lake Karakul. Then imagine you travel SW until you reach the Bartang valley. Muzkol lies between this line and the Pamir highway.
Yes, I was looking at those peaks as we drove up Gunt river this year. I am guessing they were mainly climbed during Soviet era what with being so accessible?
Nice pictures, thanks for reporting. Looks a bit different to the UK...
Article is up now!
I just tried to email you but couldn't, if you give me an address I can give you a long list of places to look for this kind of information....
