It's had around 11 official ascents, mostly from the SW. Maybe another one or two unofficial?

Try going through the free archives at: http://www.americanalpineclub.org/aajsearch

Dodo Kopold soloed a new line on it last year - it's in the 2010 AAJ - and there was a hard Russian route on it in the mid-90s.

It's also known as Annapurna Dakshin, so search for that too. It's a good looking mountain.

I had a good laugh with that one, Vitaliy. Yeah, I hope my guardian spirits can fly that high if I ever manage to take a whack at the Himalaya.

Thanks, Damien. Your info has helped a ton. The mountain seems appears to be quite a challenge as well as incredibly beautiful.
