Amazing mountain - steep section getting up to summit ridge and another steep section just before the summit - beautiful view of Lhotse. Marc Pagani, Mimi Schippers, Urke Tamang

We started around 4:00 a.m. from the basecamp at Imja Tso. Passed the ABC at dawn and reached the summit at 10 o'clock. We were nine people, including two sherpas and there was only one other team at this time. Descent directly to Chukung via same route. For some impressions of this beautiful climb see my pictures.

A good outing, fairly straightforward climbing but enough to keep it interesting.

SoloRedRoute Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: May, 1997  Sucess!
Organized my own little trip to several trekking peaks in Nepal in the spring of 1997. For Island, I hooked up with an Australian climber, Ian Hatchett, in Dingboche. I was coming from Mera and he from an unsuccessful expedition to Numbur. The climb was quite nice with a bit of technical interest while soloing the cliff up to the summit ridge. Fortunately this was only a few pitches tall because a group of inexperienced climbers from the UK & NZ were also there and Ian and I ended up shepherding these fellows back down the mountain.

We did have a beautiful day, though, and were on top before the views became obscured by clouds. Absolutely stupendous place to spend some days, ringed in by a stunnning collection of peaks and glacial landforms.

We started at 4 am at the basecamp at the moraine and tumbled the loong hang upwards to the beginning of the glacier. Using a rope there seems to be not common in the Himalaya. The steep ascent to the summit ridge was well prepared with fix ropes, done by a Sherpa who works for the german association "DAV Summit Club". Thank you! Using the fix rope was easy but exhausting, and so were the final meters along the ridge, also well prepared with ropes. 10,15 am on the summit.

The descent made me very tired, probably the acclimatization wasn't completed.

Stod on South Summit 10:39 am. The fog closed in immediately after. The Ice wall is more demanding the most people say.

Treat this peak as an Alpine one - Go light and set off as early as you can in the morning from the High Camp. 0430hrs is advisable in order to get the best of the snow conditions. Have fun - an excellent 1st Himalayan peak
