I was last in Pakistan in 2006.

Things have changed somewhat and their excitement at having Imran Khan as PM is clear.

The summer season started with a lot of snow which meant great climbing conditions once it had consolidated and we were the first to summit Gasherbrum 2, well ahead of the other groups.

We used no fixed ropes and broke trail til the summit.
