Unclimbed Hispar 2006

Although initially just planning to explore the N side of the Hispar glacier, the team decided to extend the itinerary to include visits to the Shimshal and Chapursan valleys. Although they did not attempt their originally specified main objective (Hispar Sar, 6,395m), they climbed a number of peaks, including a first ascent in each of the areas visited, viz: Mudhil Sar (5,800m) in Shimsbal, Haigutum East (5,783m) in Hispar and Gharhil Sar (5,800m) in Chapursan, each by snow/ice routes of Alpine D. They also discovered that heights of the lower peaks were rather less than marked on the widely used Swiss map of the area.
