Kajaki slab is located within the forward operating base at Kajaki in Northern Helmand. We climbed all the obvious lines except the crack line to the left of the climber which thins near the top.The Afgan dogs are Tangy and Charlie.

I'm making the assumption that you guys are on tour there at the moment what with the location and the Bergen in the corner of the pic. Just to let you guys know that we are all supporting you, are very proud of you and hope you all come home safely.

I assume its no coincidence that the FOB contained a crag! Play safe - thought sare with you.

Good effort Royal. I knew that was our tangy!

Is this a slab? That wouldn't be the nicest fall to take of a DWS...

Ha Ha, nice one Royal. No we did not want to take the fall! Some other great climbing in the area.

Were there still horrible crabs and spiders in the cracks? Good to see Tangy still living, I was there in 2007. Nice pic.
