Route Description

This route is the continuation of the ridge-top route that starts at the Yoonza Pass (See Route page for Khatoon Bargah and Kharsang Kooh/Gizno Peaks). The starting point for this route is the 3690 m saddle and the end is the 3650 m saddle. Distance is ¾ of a kilometer.

From the 3690 m saddle, walk up the southeastern slopes to the summit. The slopes directly below the summit to the north/northwest are cliffy/wall-like. To continue to the 3650 m saddle, you should back down toward the 3690 m saddle and bypass the summit to the west of it. You will encounter some cliffy areas requiring hand and foot climbing but this should not be too difficult.

Essential Gear

In summer, nothing more than good hiking boots. Crampons might come in handy in early season.
