First attempt on the North Ridge of Latok-I (7145m)

The North Ridge of Latok was first attempted in 1978 by an American expedition consisting of Jim Donini, Jeff Lowe, Michael Kennedy and George Lowe

Frist Ascent of Latok-I was first climbed in 1979 by a Japanese expedition team led by Naoki Takada

Frist Ascent of Latok-II (7108m) was first ascent in 1977, by an Italian group led by Arturo Bergamaschi. This was the first successful ascent in the group. They climbed the southeast face of the peak, and Ezio Alimonta, Toni Mase and Renato Balentini made the summit.

First Ascent of Lato-III (6,949m) the first ascent of Latok-III came in 1979, by a Japanese team under the leadership of Yoji Teranishi. They climbed the Southwest Ridge, and the summit party was Teranishi, Kazushige Takami and Sakae Mori. The second ascent, via the same route came in 1988, by an Italian party. This was in fact the first repeat ascent of any peak in the group.
