This year, the duo returned to attempt the same route North Face for the first ascent of 7108m Latok-ıı aka Ogre- ıı at an otherwise unconventional climbing time of the year. Given his experience of the Baintha Brakk Massif, and having scaled the 7284m Ogre-1 in 2012 South Face adjacent to the Latok massif, Dempster was confident to climb the notorious giant in the wild north of Pakistan.
The four peaks of the Latok massif are a cluster of dramatic granite peaks in the Panmah Muztagh range and are known for their notoriety for climbers. Latok massif is pitched between Baitha Brakk Glacier on the south and Choktoi Glacier on the north in the central region of Karakorum mountain range.
Second successful attempt came in the year 1997 when Alexander Huber, Thomas Huber, Toni Gutsch, and Conrad Anker climbed the sheer West Face of the peak.
Meanwhile a German Expedition at the Base Camp is also taking part in SARs and Pakistani Military Helicopters have also started scouring the North Face in wake of suitable weather.
