Highlights

  • The rarely climbed Muztagh Tower is an enormous rock tower, its four sides stretching steeply into the sky.
  • Perhaps the most difficult technical climb in the Karakorum.
  • Located between the basins of the Baltoro and Sarpo Laggo glaciers; for many years it was considered inaccessible.
  • Its faces are covered in ice and hanging glaciers with considerable over-hang.
  • The British party who made the first successful ascent in 1956 barely preceded a French party who was simultaneously attempting the peak from the opposite side.
  • Neither party knew of the other's presence until the French team, en route to what they believed would be a first ascent, spotted someone else standing on the summit.
