Description:

From a camp on the glacier in between Shaqsha Central and Sudoeste, traverse the crevassed glacier to the North. Pick your way up the west face through seracs, arriving on the NW ridge. The ridge is rotten snow over solid ice to the north and good snow above a large crevasse on the west. The climb more or less ends at the knife-edge ridge, the true summit being guarded by a nasty looking bit of granite and overhanging ice.

Excellent fun....9hr ascent from glacier camp, 5hr descent. Routefinding was difficult in the dark...recommend starting early but not much before sunup! The route felt tough to us, but was a great experience.
