Trango or Biaho

Hi Alpine. I had a doubt about this mountain. I thought it was the Biaho Tower. Am I wrong? Or, does the Biaho Tower bolongs to Trango Tower "group"?
Thanks a lot in advance.
Bye
Marco

Re: Trango or Biaho

It's Nameless Tower in the Trango Group. The other rock tower is Trango Monk.
Uli Biaho is not a part of the central Trango Group. I have seen some include it in "The Greater Trango Group".
I may have created some confusion when I included photos of Uli Biaho on the Trango Towers page. Also, I submitted some photos of Payu Peak, Lak and The Cathedral on the page. It's not correct to include any of those peaks in the (Central) Trango Group, but I did anyway as they're located close by and my photos of the central peaks are really, really bad.

Re: Trango or Biaho

Marco - Thanks.

Qudrat - Yes, I have been to Pakistan a couple of times including the Baltoro area. Unfortunately, the weather was awful the day I planned to go and have a closer look at the central peaks in the Trango group.

I attached your nice photo to the Trango Towers page.

Re: Trango or Biaho

My plan (2005) was to have a look at the Trango group. Because it's beautiful and also because I may be interested in attempting Great Trango Tower.
My plan for Baltistan/Baltoro area was to attempt BP and GII.

My plan for 2007 is Manaslu, Nepal, but as it's a more expensive and also more complicated (Maoists/unrest/bureaucracy) option I may head for Pakistan and an 8000'er there instead. It'll not be K2 though.

A tip for you when you submit photos to Summitpost:
Attach them to the relevant page. More people will find them then.
You can see I attached your photo of Trango Towers to the Trango Towers page. Did the same with your photo of Broad Peak.
