The Pastore Peak is located near Concordia at Khalkhal Glacier. The best climbing season is month of June to August each year. Many climber has climbed this peak. I have organized an expedition for this peak for a seven members team during the month of June-July 2008. They have tried to climb the summit, but due to bad weather condition, they failed to climbed.

For climbing of Pastore Peak from base camp to summit it will take 10 to 12 hours(Base camp to summit only), depending of the fitness, expereince of the climbers. The Concordia is junction of highest peaks on earth. There are cluster of peaks around concordia. Pastore peak is famous for its easy climb. It is very difficult for me to decribe the climb, because I have not climbed this peak, however my friends/guest who has climbed this peak or tried this peak can decribe its climb well.

In fact we couldn't make a try to climb the summit.
We put our tends in the lower part of the glacier Chal-chal.
the weather was very bad - fog, snow and wind.
the bad weather continued more than 2 days and because of our restricted time we had to continue our trek (we were doing a trek askole-concordia-k2-gasherbrum-gondogoro-hushe)

for information:
in our opinion the camp should be arranged apper on the glacier, maximum close to the point where the climbing will start - there is enough space there, not on its usual place in the lower part of the glacier. this can save min 2 hours in the day of the climbing.

we had a chance to look at the ridge and summit in good weather from godwin ostin
what we have seen is that the maximum angle is about 60 degree. unfortunately the climbing route was not clear from out point of view.
