At a elevation of 4200 meters a small grassy patch below the cliff face, looking across the glacier at the
fluted ice gullies and steep rock ridges of Masherbrum is your campsite. This is top of the valley, a dead end in a wide bowl
completely filled with glacier. Ice faces soar out of deep crevasses, sheer rock walls enclose the bowl and a curtain of 7000
meters peaks prevent the access to the Baltoro glacier beyond.
