Kuti Dorkush, First Ascent, Previously Unreported. The first ascent of Kuti Dorkush, attributed to a 1995 two-person Irish team via the Southwest Ridge, is now thought to have been first made in 1959 by two people who were part of a scientific expedition doing triangulation survey work in the Baltura Muztagh. Rudolf Bardodey and a porter, Kabul, approached from the south, reached a notch at ca. 5300 meters on the west ridge, then traversed to the crest of the north ridge, which they followed to the summit.
