Chulu West Peak Climbing: 6,220
m. (20,407 ft.)
Chulu West and Chulu Central are best accessed from a base
camp situated in a small valley north of Manang off the
main trail to the Thorong La. Some of the best views of
these peaks can be had from that pass. When climbing these
peaks, be prepared for steep scree to col a 4,900 m. North
of the col ascend snow slopes for 200 meters to a rock band
at 5,100 m. Climb this difficult rock band to 5,450 m.,
cross onto a snow plateau at 5,530m. and follow the progressively
narrowing ridge to the summit (Chulu West).
To Climb Chulu
Central, cross the snow plateau and then traverse onto the
Chulu Glacier basin east of the ridge. Ascend the broad
glacier slopes avoiding serac obstacles. While not technically
difficult, this area can be nasty in soft snow and is prone
to avalanche under certain conditions. Continue toward the
obvious Central summit on steepening snow until it is possible
to gain the crest of the summit ridge, which may be corniced.
This leads directly to a small saddle and the final 15 meter
