Khiangyang Kish Climbing Notes

Mohammad Saleh from PAKISTAN writes:

Kunyang Chhish East is an impressive summit that is located in the Hispar Muztagh, a major sub-range of the Karakoram. It may have comparatively small prominence compared to some of its neighbours, however the south-west face is one of the most awesome spectacles the region. It forms part of Kunyang Chhish massive, which also contains Kunyang Chhish Main (7852m), West (7350m), South (7620m) and North (7108m). Kunyang Chhish Main is the second highest peak in the Hispar Muztagh and 21st highest in the World. Kunyang Chhish translates as "Hidden Peak" but is not to be confused with Gasherbrum I, which is also called Hidden Peak. Kunyang Chhish East lies at the head of the Pumari Chhish glacier, which extends north from the Hispar, the 5th largest glacier in the Karakoram. To the north of the mountain is the beautiful Yazghil Glacier which has ten +7000m peaks in total rising above it. To the east of the mountain is the West Jutmo glacier which also eventually flows in to the Hispar Glacier via the main artery of the Jutmo glacier. Kunyang Chhish East is difficult to climb from all directions. It was first climbed in 20134 by Simon Anthamatten (Switzerland), Hansjörg Auer, and Matthias Auer (both Austria) via the south-west face (ca 2700m). Prior to that there were three official attempts on the mountain, also from the south-west via the Pumari Glacier. A Polish and American expedition made failed alpine-style attempts of the SW face and a Korean team tried to siege the mountain via a longer to the west that skirted close to Ice Cake (6400m). There may be other attempts that have been made without a permit that I am not aware of. The Korean expedition report mentions a French expedition at base camp without a liason officer (and therefore probably without a permit) but does not mention anything about an attempt. Valery Babanov and Patrick Delaney had planned to attempt the peak in 2007. According to their web blog the latter was "psychologically unready for it"
