Photos from a Kyrgyzstan Epic

First descents in the Tien Shan Mountains

In February, 2012, The North Face athletes Izzy Lynch, Leah Evans, and Mike Hopkins traveled to Kyrgyzstan to explore the Tien Shan Mountains and shoot the short film Jalpak Tash: A Kyrgyzstan Epic. Situated in post Soviet Central Asia, the crew set up basecamp in a yurt, ski-toured, bagged a few first descents, and discovered a part of the world they knew little about.

Check back tomorrow for an interview with Mike Hopkins, Leah Evans, and Izzy Lynch about their trip. Jalpak Tash: A Kyrgyzstan Epic will premiere online here on Wednesday.
