The Ogre (Baintha Brakk)

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

Re: The Ogre (Baintha Brakk)

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).

Unclimbed???

WOW that's inspirational. How many days does it take to get to this spot?

Re: Unclimbed???

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).
