First Ascent of Karakoram Peak 'Shaue Sar' (6,653m)

Austrian runner and climber Philipp Brugger has announced via social media that he, Tomas Franchini and Lukas Waldner have succeeded in making the first ascent of Shaue Sar (6,653m) via a 2,000m line on the mountain's north face.



The peak, which is located in the Momhil Valley in Pakistan, was both unnamed and unclimbed until the trio's ascent. They chose the name 'Shaue' meaning "horns" in the local language due to the number of ibex they encountered near basecamp.
