Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Steve House called again last night from the Charakusa Valley in Pakistan. As you know, he, Vince Anderson and Marko Prezelj have been acclimatizing for first ascents of the west faces of both K6 and K7. It was mostly high-fives and happy times until this report came in. Mother Nature brought some intense weather to the Karakoram and put a damper on the team’s attempt at another first ascent during acclimatization.

They did however get some visitors while the weather was bad. The separate teams of Kelly Cordes and Scott DeCapio from Colorado, and Maxime Turgeon and LP Menard from Quebec, stopped by basecamp to say hello. In an interesting twist, we find out that all three teams share objectives to one degree or another. So now the race is on to see who will snag the first ascents.

Stay tuned for another update from Steve tomorrow. For more details, check out the recent post on Alpinist’s newswire.
