Latok I Attempt. Our expedition was composed of Remy Martin, Roger Laot and me. We hoped to climb the Lowe route on Latok I. It took us seven days from Dassu to reach Base Camp on the Choktoi Glacier on July 11. We fixed rope on the first 600 meters. The climb was particularly difficult because there was a lot of snow covering the rock. Moreover, the weather was very bad in the Karakoram this summer. Martin became sick. Laot and I made a summit attempt and on August 1 reached about 6000 meters.
