Americans Climb Huge Indian Wall

Jonny Copp and Micah Dash made a speedy, alpine-style first ascent of the 19,200-foot “Shafat Fortress” in Kashmir, India. The two men climbed the Colorado Route (VI 5.11 A1 M6) on their first attempt, spending four days en route, including nearly two days inside their tent due to weather and conditions. They reached the summit on August 11, only eight days after reaching base camp.
