Muztagh Tower Expedition ( 7273m) Gilgit Baltistan
Muztagh Tower also: Mustagh Tower; Muztagh: ice tower, is a mountain in the Baltoro Muztagh, part of the Karakoram range in Baltistan on the border of the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan.
Muztagh Tower is located between Baltoro and Sarpo Laggo Glaciers, as the name implies, is an enormous rock tower, its four sides stretching steeply into the sky. This is perhaps the most difficult and technical climb in the Karakoram, and for many years was considered inaccessible.
Muztagh Tower (7273m) Expedition
Its faces are covered in ice and hanging glaciers, and there is considerable overhang. The British party who made the first successful ascent barely preceded a French party who was simultaneously attempting the peak from the opposite side.
Neither party knew of the other’s presence until the French team, en route to what they believed would be a first ascent, spotted someone else standing on the summit.
