Asia, Pakistan—Karakoram, Trango Towers

Publication Year: 1980.

Trango Towers. It has been pointed out that we have not clearly stated in A.A.J., 1977 and 1978, exactly which of the Trango towers were climbed. The British climbed a spectacular tower which stands out clearly from the rest, while the next year the Americans climbed the highest tower of the group. In the photograph on page 437 of A.A.J., 1978 the American tower appears on the left and the British on the right.
