From the summit of Kahar the Great (4015 m), head west and descend the ridgetop to a 3730 m saddle with Kahar the Small Peak (3916 m). You can either climb to the top of Kahar the Small Peak or bypass it by traversing its southern slopes. Make sure you bypass Kahar the Small on the south side. On our return trip, we tried to traverse it on its north side but ran into steep snowy areas that sat between cliffs (see pictures).

After Kahar the Small, you will reach a 3790 m saddle between Peak 4050 m and Kahar the Small. Follow the ridgetop SE/S and then south to the summit of Peak 4050 m and then turn west going down a little and up again to reach Naz.
