“Sleds and Huskies if you please
we’ll bring this mountain to it’s knees”
Mustagh Ata (7,546m, 24,750ft) lies in western China, about 25 km east of Tajikstan and about 75 km north of Pakistan. It was attempted in 1947 by the famous British climbers Shipton and Tilman who turned back only about 100m below the summit exhausted from making a trail in the deep soft snow and suffering from altitude sickness and frostbite. The same three problems of deep soft snow, altitude and severe cold have plagued climbers ever since. Besides of that it is an easy to climb mountain.
