NW Face of Hispar Sar (6400m)
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
NW face of Hispar Sar (6400m) from the Jutmo glacier. Hispar Sar remains unclimbed. The main problem of trying to climb via this face is the final steep section over bad rock. Simon Yates and Andy Parkin came very close in 2004 before a storm forced a retreat close to the summit. They climbed a couloir ("Super Couloir") on the SW aspect of the peak.
