The fact that the Chileans have first come up with the Praqa Ri therefore remains without doubt. This is not the case for the second mountain. It seems that the Mirchi Peak had already climbed many years ago in 1983. According to the Journal of Alpinists in 1984, the top of 6270 m was reached by the first Dutch explorers Gerard van Sprang and Ronald Naar, who came to the top in the occasion of the conquest of the Broad Peak. The top, then called BK 12, has also appeared in guides and literature at Khalkhal Ri West. Apparently Chilean climbers did not know about this ascent.
Regardless of the error, the two peaks are really important, especially if we consider that this is the debut in the region of this young group. During their brief nine-day visit to Karakorum, Khalkhal Ri West (and although they were not the first, they did not have much information on this mountain) and opened a new road to the pristine Praqpa Ri South (7046m ). The difficulties of the road were graded by Bosh and Mora as TD + M3, 50-90 °, 1500 m.
