Baintha Brakk, or The Ogre, is an extremely steep 7285 meters high peak in Pakistan. It is considered as one of the toughest climbs in the world between mountaineers, reachable only for the best technicians between them. The first ascent was in 1977, but the second one was even 24 years later, in 2001, after over 20 unsuccessful expeditions. It is hard due to the combination of altitude, height above local terrain and steepness. The peak rises over 3000 meters on only 2000 meters of horizontal distance. Despite the craggy terrain, according to climbers additional problems are the hungry bears that could make a lot of problems in camps.
With climbing being one of the fastest growing recreational sports in India, millions of amateur trekking and climbing enthusiasts are exploring the adrenaline rush of this mentally and physically stimulating sport. Thousand's of certified Mountaineers are graduating from the 4 premium National Mountaineering Institutes in India annually and are exploring the largest and youngest mountain range in the world, standing sentinel across the North of our country.
