Maharbani Sar. In Lo Scarpone of December 1, 1975 an account appears telling of a first ascent made by two Italians, Roberto Ive and Elio Padovan; it is not clear to the editor just where they climbed. They traveled by jeep to Munsgol and trekked to Base Camp at 11,225 feet below Peak 106 (5750 meters or 18,865 feet). They camped at 13,750 and 16,575 feet but failed 650 feet below the summit of Peak 106. They then turned to Maharbani Sar, a crystaline schist pyramid, which they climbed on August 8.
