Description

This magnificent peak has been long time unexplored, what makes it even more interesting because it has the taste of discovery.

In 1926, Helmut Fritz and Germain Stoller attempted to reach the summit by its south eastern side. Since they did not leave any register, the glory of the first ascent was granted to Wilfrid Fritz, in 1941. The second ascent in 1950, by Douglas Moore, opened the way to obtain more precise data about its topography, fact that increased the possibilities to climb the peak by other routes, with different difficulty levels.
