Annapurna South, forms the massive south-facing
wall, well seen when trekking north from Pokhara.
Hiunchuli is the eastern bastion of this rampart,
with its East Face overlooking the Modi Khola,
guarding the entrance to the Annapurna Sanctuary.
An impresseve mountain in its own right, and not,
as it was at one time dubbed, ‘the eastern
outlier of Annapurna South’. Despite the
relative ease of access to the mountain and the
popularity, rightly so, of the Sanctuary as a
trekking destination, it has, like Fluted Peak
, received little attention from mountaineers
although it obviously offers major new route porential.
From the south,
Hiunchuli has few weaknesses in its defences.
A precipitous south wall rises above the untracked
Chomrong Khola, seemingly menaced by snow avalanches
from the slabby, ice-veined buttresses above.
The easter flank from afar appears the most approach-
able; however, once beyond Kuldi Ghar, it seems
far less so. Out of sight, the mountain remains
an unknown quantity approached by only a few,
through steep and dense bamboo forest, menaced
by unseen avalanche danger from hanging glaciers
above. From the north the mountain rises steeply
above the moraines of the Annapurna South Glacier
in a series of slabby buttresses and an ill-defined
and complicated North Ridge. These in turn lead
to a final triangle of fluted ice that form the
summit. The summit is bounded on the east by a
ridge that rises in an icy parabola from a small
col , from which a steep couloir descends towards
the moraines above the lodges at base camp. This
is a feasible looking route, and is as yet unclimbed.
The mountain’s western arm is the ridge
connecting it with Annapurna South, and forming
from the north an icy wall. It is this wall that
has provided the key to new things.
