Point 5,911m, attempt. During acclimatization for an attempt on Khunyang Chhish, Kazuo Tobita led a five-person team on an attempt on an unnamed 5,911m peak near Kilik Pass. This is northwest of the Karakoram Highway, near the northernmost point of Pakistan. From a base camp in the Kilik Jilga valley on the southeast side of the mountain, climbers reached a snow peak at 5,850m but did not reach the main summit.
