Climb at Amin Brak
Amin Brak expedition presents a highly technical and real climbing mecca. Many who had attempted quote that Amin Brak is more technical, complex, and the extended wall on the earth and consider it harder than Tower Towers. They said Amin Brak is all granite from the bottom to the top at 5,850m, as compared to Trango Towers which they consider more schist and gneiss.
The Brak was first attempted by a Spanish team 1n 1995 and many teams tried over time but Amin Brak was the first time summited by Spanish climber Silvia Vidal, Pep Masip, and Miguel Puigdomenech in August 1999. Amin Brak was a nameless rock until 1999 the team named the peak after their cook’s son Amin, from then it is globally known as Amin Brak.
