I think the Nanga Parbat Rupal Face was missing, so it is here.

It's not Nanga Parbat Rupalface

I'm sorry, but the picture doesn't show the Nanga Parbat Rupalface.

Re: It's not Nanga Parbat Rupalface

Seyfferth, I have not been personally to Rupal Valley, This picture is taken by my guide while trekking from Rupal to Diamir via Mazeno Pass. I think it is Rupal face but not sure now as you pointed out. Can you please give more details why you think so.

There is a photo on here of the Rupal face at: http://www.summitpost.org/image/16780/150276/nanga-parbat-rupal-face-seen.html

This photo looks nothing like the Rupal Face.

Re: not Nanga Parbat Rupalface

These are actually the peaks across the valley from the Rupal Face, on the south side, and are known as 'the Rupal peaks'. So this photos is the north face of the Rupal peaks.

Re: not Nanga Parbat Rupalface

Agreed. Not sure what peaks these are specifically but they are definately north faces judging by the snow line so probably on the south side of the Rupal valley. I'd be surprised if they were over 6000m. I've not seen the peaks futher up the valley beyond Rupal Peak (the sp page I've already put up) except Laila (5971m) which this isn't.

This is the NP south face!!!:
