Singu Chuli Peak (6.501m) Climbing

Singu Chuli (Fluted Peak) 6.501m Peak Climbing

singu chuli peakSingu Chuli is one peak amongest many in the Annapurna Himal of Nepal at an elevation of 6,501m or 21,328ft. It was formerly known as Fluted Peak. Singu Chuli looks like a minor peak being very foreshortened. Singu Chuli involves a long and arduous climb up an often heavily corniced snow ridge.The first ascent of this peak was made by Wilf Noyce and David Cox on its North-East Face and the top section of the East Ridge. This mountain has proven to be very difficult to climb for most commercial climbing groups who have tried to concentrate on Tent Peak. Singu Chuli is the first summit on the long ridge thrown down from Tarke Kang (Glacier Dome), which separates the South and West Annapurna Glaciers. Annapurna South Base Camp provides the best distant view of the mountain. To date, apart from the original route, most efforts to climb this mountain have concentrated on the face and ridges seen from this viewpoint. The southwest ridge of the mountain connects with Tent Peak. The terrain between the two mountains is a confusing one and the ridge is not straight. Please beware that the area is stone falling prone area and the peak is technically very difficult to climb. Due to global warming, the landslide occurs numerous times resulting in the change of the route.
