Day 10

Summit camp to Summit attempt (6387M)

Today is the day you all have been waiting for. We start by 0200 hours while the snow remains hard making it easier to walk with a decent pace, aiming to reach the summit in 7-8 hours. The summit climb involves fixing a rope to negotiate a 75-100 feet vertical wall of slope making it extremely technical and challenging. Utmost care needs to be taken at this point. The slope being very steep, it is important for the lead climber to open and fix the route leading to a ridgeline. Finally, you reach the summit. The summit of Black Peak (Kalanag) is flat.
