Cathedral Peak is a beautiful pyramid of snow and ice and one of the most accessible 6,000m peaks in the Karakoram. Located in the Hushe Valley of Baltistan, it lies on a ridge separating the Masherbrum and Aling Glaciers, just a few miles south of the towering bulk of 7,821m Masherbrum. This peak is first time climbed by an Italian party in 1988, British in 1991 and the Pakistan Army in 1996. There are unconfirmed reports of an Irish ascent from the Aling valley a few years ago.

The Hushe Valley has become famous in recent years for offering some of the most dramatic scenery and best climbing in the Karakoram Himalaya. Cathedral Peak Base Camp (BC) is a short trek from the road head, enabling us to minimize travel time and maximize climbing time in this 3-week expedition. Two camps will be used above BC. The climbing is varied and not without some difficulties with steep snow and ice slopes between camps 1 and 2, as well as a short steep summit section. Fixed ropes will be used as needed and High Altitude Porters (HAPs) will be employed to carry the bulk of your equipment.
