The Seven-thousanders

Spantik ( 7027m )

All 14 Eight Thousanders - Reinhold Messner On Top of the World - climbing the 14 highest mountains

 

The Seven Thousanders - Spantik / Golden Peak ( 7027m ) in the Karakorum Mountains of Pakistan
Spantik / Golden Peak ( 7027m ) in the Pakistan Karakoram

Spantik lies east of Diran peak and northeast of Malubiting peak

Spantik is one of  the safest and most straightforward 7,000m ascents in the Himalaya.

It has therefore gained considerable attention from climbers 

due to its accessibility and relative ease of ascent.

It provides for a full wilderness climbing experience in true expedition style,

in a corner of the Karakoram still untouched by modern tourism and western influences.

An objectively safe route leads to a summit dome that provides extensive views with

all four 8,000m peaks at the head of the Baltoro Glacier readily visible.
