Ladyfinger Peak – Distinct Rock Spire in the Batura Muztagh
Ladyfinger Peak, also called Bublimotin, Bubli Motin, or Bublimating is a distinct rock spire in the Batura Muztagh, the westernmost subrange of the Karakoram Range in Pakistan. It lies on the southwest ridge of the Ultar Sar massif, the most southeasterly of the main groups of the Batura Muztagh. A 6,000-metre rock climb (with a very serious alpine approach) and some notable paragliding have taken place there. To the southeast, the Hunza Valley rises precipitously from the massif. You can view ladyfinger peak from different parts of Hunza. The view from Baltit fort is super amazing, particularly early morning and the sunset.
The entire massif rises precipitously above the Hunza Valley to the southeast. Bublimotin, while having slight prominence above the saddle close to Hunza Peak, is most notable for being a sharp, comparatively snowless rock spire among snow peaks. This combined with its height above the valley makes it quite striking; hence the distinctive name. It provides a rock climb opportunity with a very serious alpine approach and has been the scene of some distinguished paragliding.
