    First Bath Since August 16th

    Shower1 As promised, Steve House called in again with a quick update from the Charakusa Valley in Pakistan. It sounds like the weather has been bad enough to put the kibosh on K6 West. On the upside, the team is hoping to get out for a Sierra-style rock climb that Steve describes in this update.

    Steve also admits to taking his first bath since August 16. I don't know if this is a record for Steve (doubtful) but he didn't quite surpass "Team Dirtbag" author Topher Browne's record of five weeks without a shower.
