Significantly the summit day starts very early in the morning with an interesting scramble along a rock ridge to a glacier. Furthermore above the rock ridge, there is a steep snow headwall leading to the summit. Of course, this is a physically challenging but a great day of achievement. Obviously, our permanent and highly experienced climbing guides fix NEW ropes. Thus ensure safe ascent with Jumar and harness for the strenuous and challenging section. The ultimate climb up a 60 - 70 degree faces about 150 meters to the summit ridge.
