On the off chance that someone from these boards will be in Central Asia this summer....

I'll be in Bishkek in early July and would welcome a partner for weekend cragging in Ala Archa national park. In particular, I'd like to try the Schwaba line (a classic which I have yet to climb) though I would be happy to climb Bachichike again (or climb both!). For descriptions, see:

Please send a PM if you're interested.
