The Peak is
located in the Rakaposhi and Haramoshi massif near Barpu Garumbar
glaciers. Some foreign maps name it as Yengutz peak in addition to Spantik
peak. The other maps call it Genish Chish (peak), its height is 7027
In 1892 a large
expedition of W.M. Conway went to the area to explore the glaciers
situated around the peak. The expedition thereafter crossed Nushik pass,
which it claims is 5273 meters high and descended on Kero Lungma glacier
In 1959 a British-Pakistan
Army expedition under the leadership of Captain H.R.A. Streather, went to
Chogolungma and Kero Lungma glaciers to explore them for a possible climb on
the smaller peaks in the area.
The peak was however climbed
from south ridge by a Japanese Club Expedition called Hoshi-to-Arashi (Stars
and Storms) led by Nakamura. The Reiho Alpine Club expedition of Japan also
climbed it in the same year from south-east ridge. It was led by Y. Murata.
Both expeditions mention avalanche danger in the area and both approached the
peak from Chogolungma Glacier. Some Japanese publications indicate that
Spantik peak was climbed in 1955 by Germans.
