Over the last two seasons, two teams have attempted the first ascent. In 2017, a Chilean team climbed the east-southeast ridge to the southeast summit, but did not attempt the long traverse to the main summit. For those who aspire to bag this unclimbed Karakoram giant, Alejandro Mora has some advice in his AAJ report: "The ridge leading toward the main peak was very sharp and corniced, and the higher peak was very far away, requiring some descent before climbing to the top," he wrote. "I think that the best way to reach the main summit will be to follow a different approach to the base and climb a direct route."
