Mountain Profile: Latok
Posted on: April 1, 2010
To many climbers, the name "Latok" conjures up one of the world's most famous unclimbed routes. But the massif contains more than just the North Ridge of Latok I: a series of spires like "a row of El Capitans," and a history of varied dreams from the alpinists who have attempted—and sometimes even summited—these walls. Conrad Anker explores the blanks on the map, while Don Arturo Bergamaschi, Jeff Lowe, Tsuneo Shigehiro, Christian Schlesener and Mark Richey fill in their lines.
