Hold onto your hat when your close to the edge

by backpackingbongos

The tents had been pitched and there was a good couple of hours to sunrise.  Time for a quick ascent of Fan Gyhirych before getting back and lighting the stoves.  Towards the summit the horizon began to turn black but we were still bathed in golden sunlight.  All of a sudden the bleak plateau gave way to a steep drop and we had the world spread out beneath our feet.

Hopefully a full write up by the weekend.
