I’ve always thought that the most insecure climbs are the most attractive. If I know I can do something, it’s not so interesting.


Jeff Lowe, b. 1950

I always thought I’d save the Alps for old age, and now I’m old.

Kantenga (6779m) new route on the right side of the northwest ridge, alpine style in ten-day round trip, with Alison Hargreaves, Mark Twight, Tom Frost

Nuptse, southeast buttress, attempt with Mark Twight, reached 6700 after single eight-day push, very technical climbing (5.10 A4). Stopped by bad weather.

The route is one of the finest I have been on and has just the combination of features I am looking for: steep, technical mixed ground, and altitude.
