Pisang Peak

Pisang peakDuration: 22 Days
Max. Altitude: 6091m
Grade: C
Region: Annapurna

Seen from Pisang peak, the peak rises from yak pastures above the village in a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid, which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope. Looked at from above Ongre the peak is a little more interesting and can be seen as a curved ridge, with face above Pisang peak being the truncated southern end of the mountain. This is made up of steeply tilted 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, would appear to offer 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 however, looks problematical as the ridge is guarded by huge rock slabs, a feature on this side of the valley.
