Singu Chuli Peak Climbing

Singu Chuli Climbing

Formerly known as the Fluted Peak, the first ascent of the Singu-Chuli Peak was made by Wilf Noyce and David Cox on its North-East Face and the top section of the East Ridge. The mountain has proved to a demanding attempt for most commercial climbing groups that concentrate on Tent Peak. Singu Chuli is the first summit on the long ridge thrown down from Tarke Kang (Glacier Dome) separating the South and West Annapurna Glaciers. Annapurna South Base Camp provides the best distant view of the mountain. Apart from the original route, most efforts to climb this mountain have concentrated on the face and ridges. Singu Chuli southwest ridge of the mountain connects with Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak). The terrain between the two mountains is a confusing one and the ridge is not straight.

We follow the trekking trail up to Machhapuchhre base camp and then cross South Annapurna Glaciers and moraines to reach grassy meadows to a rock overhang which can be used as base camp ( 4,200m.). We climb through the glaciers towards north and pass through grassy shelf to reach a ridge where we will set up high camp ( 4,900m.). From this camp we continue climbing between the glaciers and the flank of the mountain to reach a plateau below the North-East Face. We will fix Camp I on a shelf ( 5,600m.) just below the center of the face. We climb towards right hand which lead us just below a vertical wall (122m.). We follow a gully on the left and climb steep steps to gain upper section of the East-Ridge and then to the summit.
