First Ascent of »The Unknown Peak« (6050m)

Together with Max Berger, Much Mayr and Guido Unterwurzacher I’ve made a three-day alpine style ascent of a previously unclimbed 6050m peak in the Northern Indian Himalaya.

After acclimatising and waiting for the suitable weather window, we spent two days ascending the mountain’s Southeast Face, breaching “beautiful mixed terrain, not too hard” and bivying at 4400m and at 5000m. We reached the summit at circa 9.45am on Friday 5th October and then abseiled down the same route, returning safely to base camp at circa 3200m later on the third day.

Great trip and a place definitely to come back!
