Baintha Brakk Expedition Gilgit Baltistan

Baintha Brakk or the Ogre is a steep, craggy mountain, 7,285m high, in the Panmah Muztagh, a subrange of the Karakoram mountain ragne. It is located in Baltistan Pakistan. It is famous for being one of the hardest peaks in the world to climb. Baintha Brakk rises above the north side of the Biafo glacier, one of the major glaciers of the central Karakoram. It lies about 75 kilometers north of Skardu, the majior town of the region, and about 30 kilometers north of the redhead at Askoli. Baintha Brakk is exceptional in its combination of altitude, height above local terrain, and steepness. It is a complex granite tower, steeper and rockier than most other Karakoram peaks. (The Latok peaks next to Baintha Brakk are similar, however.) For example, its South Face rises over 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) above the Uzun Brakk Glacier in only 2 km (1.24 mi) of horizontal distance.It is because of this steep, rocky nature that Baintha Brakk has been both so difficult to climb and so attractive a target for extremely high-level mountaineers.

It is a complex granite tower, steeper and rockier than most other Karakoram peaks and is on the northeastern side of Biafo Glacier (west of K2). It is sinister and foreboding and its sheer east wall looks and acts like a medieval fortress. It is exceptional in its combination of altitude, height above local terrain, steepness. For example, its South Face rises over 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) above the Uzun Brakk Glacier in only 2
kilometers (1 mile) of horizontal distance! It is because of this steepness and rockiness that the mountain was nicknamed ‘The Ogre’ and became so attractive for extremely highly qualified mountaineers.
