Made three attempts on this mountain.
-First time forced down by bad weather after only a few hours climbing,
-Second time had to descend the 700m we had climbed that morning after one of my climbing partners was struck in the thigh by a large rock,
-Third attempt, having gained the start of the NW ridge we were again forced to descend due to bad weather.
Managed to climb the neighbouring peak however called Shifkiten Sar (ca 5700m) although it was an anticlimax.
