Route Climbed: From Khatoon Bargah Date Climbed: June 18, 2005
We had spent the night near the summit of Khatoon Bargah Peak so we reached the summit of #2 early in the morning. The "snow steps" were fun. We did not go all the way to the top of #1. We bypassed it via its southern and western slopes just below its summit. The icy snow that was still mostly in the shade here required crampons. Descended the north/northwestern slopes of #1 to the 3690 m saddle.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
