On June 26, 2012, I climbed a possible new route on Peak 5,550m, one of the subpeaks east of Wila Lloje. I climbed the northwest face at D-, a nice mixed route with a steep chimney near the top that provided the main difficulty. This peak was probably first climbed in June 1973 by Germans Georg Frey and Dieter Schoodt, via the east ridge. In July 1996, Brian Gebruers and Erik Monasterio climbed a couloir on the southeast face.
