Masherbrum II, Ascent. It was reported that a Pakistan Army expedition that had wanted to climb Masherbrum I turned their attentions to a 6200-meter peak 12 kilometers to the southeast of Masherbrum I. Ten members are thought to have reached the summit. There is some confusion about precisely which peak they climbed, as the true Masherbrum II is the 7806-meter southwest summit of Masherbrum I.
