Brooks-Range ambassador Alison Criscitiello and her expedition partner Anna Smith will set out on September 20th to attempt the West Ridge of Brahmasar II, an unclimbed route in the Garhwal region of the Indian Himalaya. With a solid list of secondary objectives, check back often to see updates from Alison as the two attempt to send some bold new lines in the Himalaya. This expedition would not be possible without the support of the Mugs Stump Award and the Alpine Club of Canada John Lauchlan Award, Brooks-Range Mountaineering, Petzl, Mountain Gear, MaryJane’s Organic Farm, Rumpl, Bogg’s Trail Butter and backpacks from Arc’teryx.
UPDATE: Due to unfortunate circumstances, this expedition has been halted. This is a developing situation and all we know is what has been reported online. We send our sincere condolences to Anna’s family and friends at this time, and we wish Ali a safe and speedy return home.
