Description

On the Afghanistan / Pakistan border. Elevation from Andrew Kirmse's global SRTM prominence dataset. Name and location confirmed by ArcGIS and Google Earth. This peak is only a few KM from Dilisang Pass, a historic and disused cross-border trading route connecting Kyrgyz and Wakhi settlements. This pass was crossed legally by adventurers John Mock & Kimberley O'Neil in 2004 while returning from a trek to the source of the Oxus River.

First ascent in August 1999 by a Japanese team: http://publications.americanalpineclub.org/articles/12200032901/Asia-Pakistan-Hispar-Muztagh-Sakar-Sar-First-Ascent
