Baintha Brakk, Ogre and Latok Peaks
Try your luck on the steep, rocky peaks
If you have love for adventure on a sheer and rocky mountain, the Baintha Brakk, also popular as the Ogre, offer you the opportunity to fulfill your craving.
Standing high at 7285 meters high in a sub range of the Karakorum called the Panmah Muztagh in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan, this peak has gained popularity for being one of the difficult peaks to climb. On the other hand, the Latok is a band of stagy, rocky peaks to the east of the Baintha Brakk or Ogre peaks.
These rocky peaks are extremely hard to summit and you can deduce this from the fact that the Ogre was first summited in 1977 and its second summit occurred 24 years after the first summit. On the other hand, Latock was first summited by a team of Japanese climbers in 1979. Most of the attempts to these peaks have remained unsuccessful.
