Alam Kuh or Alum Kooh Climbing Notes

Ayaz Saeidzadeh from IRAN, ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF writes:

The north face of this peak creates vertical walls of Alam Kooh and Shakhak. There is a perfect 350m wall under the summit of Shakhak sometimes it can be seen even more impressive than an Alam Kooh wall in some photos which have the height range between 350m and 600m (including steep glacier). Alam Kooh famous for its wall. The fame is for being the wall having the highest altitude at base and peak, no other wall in Iran is located in a higher place than Alam Kooh wall. There is a glacier name Alamchal at the base of the north face that slightly rises to about 4200m. Then there is about 150m to 200m, very steep glacier (nearly vertical). And the wall rises about 450m vertical granite rock up to the summit.
