Geshot peak expedition

17 DAYS / 16 NIGHTS

Geshot peak 6324 m is the local name for the northern most of the Toshe group of peaks. Access from the Bunar valley offers an interesting variation on the north and west aspects of this massif, accessing the unclimbed summits of this group. Avoiding the long and convoluted Toshain Glacier on the east side, basecamps for Geshot (Peak 6200), Peak 6324 and Toshe 1 6242m (all unclimbed) are a two day trek from the end of the road at the village of Bunar Jal.

The Geshot basecamp has been established by Ptor Spricenieks on 2 different ski attempts on it’s northwest flank. The Peak 6324 and Toshe 1 basecamps would be located somewhere up the Jalhari Glacier, have yet to be established. All routes offer direct steep snow climbing in spring along with potentially significant avalanche risk. In summer, the technical difficulty would increase as the steep slopes return to icy conditions. Ridge climbs could also be possible.
