First Ascents in the Khumbu Himal

Welcome to Lunag 2012

Locked and Loaded in Portland

To make some distinctions this is the Blog for American’s Chris Wright and Geoff Unger and their trip to the Kumbu Himal, October through December 2012.  The goal of the trip is to climb routes in alpine style on unclimbed peaks on or next to the Lunag Massif.

Background

We met in his hometown of Bend Oregon in the Fall of 2009.  Since then we have been fast friends and motivated climbing partners.  The primary credit must go to Chris for applying for the Copp Dash Inspire Award.  When we received this prestigious award we were elated and began planning for our trip to the Himalaya.

We had never ventured to Nepal before and set about preparing for the trip and thankfully had most things in place before we met in Bend to pack for the trip.  We are hopeful that all the training and preparation will pay off in a first ascent!
