From Eldora to Qinghai Province

In September 2017, Eldora ski patroller Jessica Keil and a climbing partner traveled to the remote mountain range of Nyainbo Yuze in China’s Qinghai province to embark on an ambitious alpine-climbing expedition. After entering the range on September 29th, Jessica and her partner needed to decide between three valleys to make home for the next few weeks. They decided to head to the northernmost part of the range, to a valley not yet visited by climbers, and set up a camp at 4,300 meters.
