Fatal Attraction ?

It appears that the climbing routes would
have very frequent "rockfalls?" Is the
climbing season over in Pakistan, or is it
just beginning??

Looks very challenging, Afzal!

Re: Fatal Attraction ?

Thank you very much for your comments and vote to my photo. The climbing route of this peak is really very difficult, but this peak has been climbed many time. While trekking to K2 base camp and concordia, one can see countless peaks like this. The climbing season of Karakoram is off now. The best climbing season in Karakoram, is from the month of May to end of September each year. After September, the weather condition in the mountains is very cold and no can live there.
Thanks again for your kind comments.
Best regards, Afzal
