North Albania Meet : approx dates 8-22nd July 2012
This trip is mainly about exploration and new routing. I am in the process of making contact with people that have been there and we have been very lucky to make contact with one of the guys who took part in putting up a big route on the Arapit mountain (see picture to right) and he has offered to put us in touch with some Albanian climbers who speak english. Therefore information at the moment is limited but so far this is what I have. It is likely getting there may need to be a joint venture and then teams can work on there own in terms of routes and mountains attempted.
The links below will take you to a pictorial tour of the area and our likely expedition. The PDF files are very large so please be patient (not suitable for dial-up internet access):
