East faces of Praqpa Ri, 7156m (centre-left) & Skil Brum, 7360m (centre-right)
Praqpa Ri in the centre-left of the photo has three high points. The south (7089m, left) and main (7156m, right) summits of Praqpari are clearly visible with the north summit (7096m) just visible behind the main summit. Skil Brum (7360m) is centre-right in this photo. Savoia Kangri (7263m) lies immediately north, to the right of Skil Brum, and is hidden in this photo. The Himalayan Index and Google Earth mark Praqpa Ri as Savoia Kangri and Savoia Kangri as Summa Ri but this is incorrect. All climbers who have attempted the 7263m peak north of Skil Brum recognise it to be "Savoia Kangri".
The Praqpa Glacier is pictured flowing from the shoulder between Praqpa Ri and Skil Brum. It flows into the famous Godwin Austen Glacier which is flanked by K2 (8611m), Broad Peak (8051m) and Skyang Kangri (7357m).

I think Skil Brum is right-hand summit of the two peaks, in the center it should be Savoya Peak. (Compare Google Earth as well as Karakoram maps). Indeed a very impressive view of those lesser known 7000ers.

Skil Brum is the right peak but the left is Praqpari. I've updated the description to make things clearer...
