Nanga Parbat from the Nanga Parbat - Gilgit Col
This peak is #79 on the Height List for Alberta .A snowy summit on the Freshfield Icefield located E of Mount Trutch and SW of Gilgit Mountain.

Name Notes: Named in 1898 by J. Norman Collie in 1898 after Nanga Parbat in the Himalayas.


1. SE Ridge Easy ski. From north of the objective on the Freshfield Icefield travel around to below the southwest face. If approaching from the Mummery Glacier, ascend to the Nanga Parbat - Gilgit col and then travel around the to north side of the peak rather than attempt to pass on the south of the peak, which forces you to cross an avalanche susceptible slope above 2500' cliffs. Climb the moderate snow of the west/southwest face to the SE ridge, which is followed easily to the summit.
