Sarwar on top of Gondogoro Pk (the slopes behind are on the other side of a glacier)

Moments later he fell, but we had put the rope on for the descent, and I had him on an iceaxe-boot belay.

View down our ascent route --- the last 150m were a series of increasingly steep and icy steps.

View back at Gondogoro Peak

After the rocks and moraine of the Baltoro, the grass and flowers of the Hushe valley were a delight
