Location: South Hall 0220

Description: Despite being the third largest mountain range in the world and home to a good number of 6000 and 7000m peaks, climbing related tourism in the Pamirs is insignificant compared to that in Nepal, China, India or even Kyrgyzstan. In response to this, in 2011 Bo White and Sharaf Saidrakhmonov founded the Pamir Alpine Club (PAC) with the aim of creating a nexus of individuals focused on developing a sustainable climbing related tourism industry in the Pamirs. Most recently, Bo spent this past August teamed up with the Aga Khan Foundation, the University of Central Asia, Black Diamond, and the Sentinel Outdoor Institute to provide training and climbing gear to the PAC. Bo will be speaking about the creation of the PAC, climbing opportunities in the Pamirs, and how to do first ascents as an average climber. Special emphasis will be placed on the unique and enabling culture of the Pamirs.
