It's Spantik and that amazing looking pillar is called The Golden Pillar. Mick Fowler and Vic Saunders climbed it alpinne style in 1987. I think Fowler rates it as his best climb.


after you mentioned the name of the peak and the link I found out that two of my own students climbed it few years ago but I do not think anyone ever climbed that face.

Majid, you are wrong. As I said before, that face has been climbed. The pillar in the middle of the face is called The Golden Pillar and it was climbed in 1987 by Vic Saunders and Mick Fowler. It is one of the climbs featured in the book "Himalaya Alpine Style".
