Mt. Pisang peak (6091m)

Print

Pisang Peak offers good scope for exploration. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier and offers considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge is guarded by huge rock slabs, which make it difficult to climb. A German Expedition made the first ascent of Pisang Peak in 1955.This peak raises Yak Pasture above Pisang Village in a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope. Above, Ongre the peak can be seen much interesting and ca be seen as curved ridge, with the face above Pisang being the truncated southern end of the mountain. This is made up steeply tiled rock, the dip slope of which faces the valley and is well seen in this peak and the great rock slabs further down the valley. The peak obviously has a lot of scope for exploration and pioneering. The whole of the western flank which is guarded by a hanging glacier it appears a considerable challenge, whilst a traverse of the whole summit ridge which connects to a more northern summit before curving back west looks a superb possibility. Access to the western end of the ridge, how ever, looks problematical as huge rock slabs guard the ridge, a feature on this side of the valley. This Trekking peak can be combined with Throng La Pass 5416 Meters and other part of Manang Valley.
South-West Face and Ridge In 1955, J.Wellenkamp made the first ascent from Germany. From upper Pisang Village ascend a path through sparse wood and pastures to a Kharka at 4380m(Base Camp). From Base camp, a faint trail continues on open hillside following a ridge and climbing to a shoulder on south- west ridge at High Camp (5400m). Above, a well -defined ridge leads to the final snow slope which leads quite steeply although difficulty to the summit. The same route can make descent. Peak is graded on alpine PD
