This area receives only 200mm precipitation per year, but above 5000m, this can be three times as much (like for example in the Hindu Kush) This peak is a perfect introduction for a first climb over 20.000ft/6.000m. the south side of the mountain has the easy approach, whereas the N side is more complex with ice slopes/glaciers and crevasses.

    I went on a guided trip w/ a bunch of people from work. This was my first such trip so don't have much to compare it to. I would say it is a great climb for inexperienced climbers. we spend 3-4 days...
