Just to clarify from Ron's posting above, Trauma and I just recently completed the Nepal section of the Great Himalaya Trail. Trauma is still currently in India undertaking that section as I was unable to join him for India due to some time constraints with work and the loss of time with some logistical nightmares we had to deal with. Additionally it was unrealistic for us to enter Pakistan given the current political climate around the US and Bin Laden. Our original intent was to connect the eastern most 8000m peak with the western most on a route that was as high and continuous as feasible. Trauma has been continuing his updates from the field on his site at www.justinlichter.com and I just recently posted a very rough first cut of a film we plan on putting out later this year.
