Dazzling New First Ascent on Cerro Kishtwar by Huber, Siegrist and Zankar

“Located in the Indian Himalayas, in Kashmir, Cerro Kishtwar had been climbed three times prior, all via different routes. But until Stephan Siegrist, Thomas Huber and Julian Zankar no team had yet succeeded on the plumb-line directly up the northwest face.

On October 14, German alpinist Thomas Huber and Swiss alpinists Stephan Siegrist and Julian Zanker capped a seven-day first ascent for the ages. Their new route, Har-Har Mahadev, goes straight up the center of the northwest face of Cerro Kishtwar (6,155 meters), a granite-walled peak in Kashmir, India.”
