The 12-member team climbed this difficult peak on 15th September 2006. Arupam Das with Pemba Sherpa and Pasang Sherpa reached the summit. The peak is situated on the northern slopes from the Pindari glacier. It is always tricky to cross the icefall and the glacier at its snout to approach the peak. In 1970, two climbers from a Mumbai-based team were killed in an avalanche in the Pindari glacier. Anup Sah from Nainital, Uttarakhand led the first ascent of this peak in 1974.
