Shispare 7611-M (24,970 ft)
Shispare is one of the high peaks of the Batura Muztagh, which is the westernmost subrange of the Karakoram range.
A 16 member Polish-German mountaineering expedition, under the leadership of Janusz Kurczab, climbed the peak for the first time. In a second attempt one member, Heinz Borchers, a German, was burned under an avalanche which hit him above camp 11 (5,700m/18,700ft). Earlier, Borchers had slipped off the buttress edge near camp I and fallen about 1,500 feet, sustaining only minor injuries. The party had hired 110 porters who brought its equipment to Patundas from Passu. The party set up its base camp near Passu glacier. Subsequently it established four camps before an assault on the summit and came down via lower part of Passu glacier.
