It must be in view from there.
One tuff mountain it is!

Some mountains are unbelievable, and the Ogre is indeed one such. It is a prominent feature of the view at Snow Lake (though it is not visible in this picture).

Dear Matt,

Apologies! My bad... when I checked, the info about the peak was available in German, and apparently I slightly misinterpretted it when viewed its translation. I have corrected my caption.

The peak was first (and probably just once) summitted in 1956.

It takes 4-5 days of walk-in to the spot, along ~60km long Biafo glacier; and then another 4 days to walk-out of there along Hispar Glacier (almost as long as Biafo).
