Greetings from Skardu. Thwarted by heavy snows but for those interested, I have written up a few notes here on our trip to BP:

Are you going to try the Golden Pillar?

One of the best lines I have ever seen (in a photo).

Mick Fowler is hard as nails. Vic Saunders is pretty useful too

Yeah, I have 5 pitons, so will see how we go. On second thoughts, I'll fb Vic and see if that is enough.

I'd never heard of this route (or mountain before). Looks wicked. Those guys were hardcore with typical English understatement.
