Sakar Sar, second ascent. Kunihiko Sato made a solo ascent of the 6,272m Sakar Sar via the southeast ridge. This remote peak, which lies on the Afghan border in the northern Batura Muztagh and is approached via the Chapursan and Sakarjerab Valleys, gained its first and, until last year, only ascent from Miyazawa Akira’s four-member Japanese expedition, which climbed the southeast flank, finishing up a snow ridge. It appears that Sato’s route was more or less the same.
