When arriving at this point,...
When arriving at this point, everyone is looking at K2. On the left you can see some interesting peaks which are usually completely by-looked.

The main peak on the left is Marble Peak and the rock spire is called Spear Peak.
Needless to say, the mountain on the right is...

Marble Peak from another angle.

Thanks Anita.

I was trying to get Angel in the photo as well, but when I reached a high point, clouds had arrived and I couldn't see neither K2, nor Angel Peak. All three in the same picture could've been great.



Angel Peak to the left of K2.

Like Anita this is what I'm waiting for in my life; stunning views of Concordia, and your and Marcos photos are just adding oil to the fire! ;-) Another fantastic shot Corax! And yes, what a coincidence to have to K2 shots posted almost at same time!

In front of this sight man can stay only speechless.

Even in front of this screen of mine I feel so small, I can't even imagine how did you felt??

That's one of the great things when mountaineering in the big ranges - too really feel how small you're compared to the immortal, massive giants around you.

I'm 99% sure the peak in the left of the photo is Marble Peak (6256m). The rock spire I've no idea but Spear Peak sounds a good name to me!

Yes, I should add that info. It slipped my mind as the rock spire obviously stole all my attention when I posted the photo. It was a porter I met in Concordia who said the name of the rock spire is Spear Peak (possibly Lance Peak. Language barrier).

looks like sort of an ampitheatre.
Great photograph, Corax.

Thanks!
The area is so full of famous peaks that you almost get dizzy. Too many interesting sights at the same time.
I love northern Pakistan!
