Ketan, Ben, and I (Anton) recently got an NMAG grant to go to Kazakhstan to do some mountaineering. Unfortunately, our group is very injury prone... Despite all the chaos, mountaineering of various qualities was done.

Come join us in the clubroom to see some highlights from our adventures! We'll show you some variety of the following:

  • Bagging peaks in the Tien Shan and narrowly dodging lightning storms
  • Crossing boulderfields with only one good arm to eek out some time in the mountains
  • Tourism in the desert in 40-degree heat
  • Extreme sends on electric scooters

Bring food, tea, whatever. Feel free to ask questions. Vibes will be light.

Here's a zoom link for those who can't join in person:
