Angel Sar Pakistan (left of K2) any ascents.

I wonder if the good folks here at Summit Post know if anyone has ever summited Angel Sar 6,858 m in Pakistan. This is the rather sultry pyramid shaped peak next to K2.
I can't find anything online.

According to Wikipedia "Angel Sar is in the foreground, on the SSW ridge of K2. The white pyramid in the background is Chongtar Kangri" which would mean that your labeling would be incorrect. And this is the photograph from Wikipedia.

Thanks for the explanation, I have to say that the topography doesn't look right on Google Earth but it's hard to find anything else to prove otherwise.

I believe that Chontar Kangri I is the pyramid shaped peak you were pointing to. I believe that the correct location for Angel Sar pointed out below with the black arrow. Online sources make this confusing since photos of the pyramid shaped peak are labeled as Angel Sar, but I believe this to be an error.
