Nico Favresse approaches Kyzyl Asker with the last load. It took the team six days to shuttle all their gear from base camp to the base of the wall. In the 2003 British Alpine Journal, Guy Robertson wrote of the peak, "Viewed head-on from the glacier it forms an almost symmetrical triangle of vertical rock, composed on either side of monolithic towers rising towards the apex at the mountain's summit."
