This was either the middle or the south Jhandark Needle. These did not pose much of a technical challenge. The very tip of Kholeno the Small 4350 m on the right.

I saw it on your site. Did anyone say where the name "Jhandark" came from?

Yes, thanks

To my knowledge, Jhandark is the same French person that in English is known as "Joan of Arc". I just do not understand why the name of a French historical person is on an Iranian Mountain. Are you aware of any mountains in France that are named after Iranian characters such as "Koorosh Bozorg" or "Khaarazmi"...?

No no it's not a name of a person. A Friend (Mr Ali Parsai) told me that is a changed expression of "gendarme" that means "Rock tower".

As I said in the main page too, I always suspected that "Jhandark" was a misnomer for "Gendarmeā€.

We then need to call these needles "Jhandarm" not "Jhandark".
