Trip Report: No Fun Allowed (1600m, 5.10, A0, AI 4+)

In October, AAI Guide Tad McCrea, Jason Kruk and Joel Kauffman established a 5000-foot new route up the South Ridge of the unclimbed Chaukhamba III (6974m) in the Garhwal region of the Indian Himalaya.

The team made a very lightweight ascent, spending six days on the route. Tad says that the adventre was an "odyssey that was mind bending, time transcending and ego breaking..."

The new route is SAB KUCH MILEGA (No Fun Allowed!). The route clocks in at 1600m, 5.10, A0, AI 4+.

Tad recently completed the following video:
