4089m Doesn't seem kootool!
Beautiful photos. Thanks.

Sure does not,

On some maps this peak is called Sefid Ghotoor but the local guy called it Sefid Kootool. I found the word "Kootool" more appealling than "Ghotoor". Ironically Kootool and Ghotoor have almost opposite meanings.

Dozens of times going to Taleghan valley, I never got good answers from them for the peak names, even the locals who climbed them.

I too had a hard time giving names to these peaks. Some of the maps that I have seen give the name Taleghan or Sefid Ghotoor (the local guy called it Sefid Kootool) to Peak 4089 m.

Except for the 1:50 000 map, most other maps completely ignore peaks 4065 m, 4042 m and 4022 m. One map called Peak 4065 m "Khashe Chal" but that is the name given to the peak that rises above Evan Lake.

The names Saal Barf, Siah Darreh and Sefid Ab appear on the 1:50 000 map not as names for peaks but written somewhere over the slopes of Peaks 4065 m, 4042m & 4022 m. So I decided to use those names.
