Overview

Singu Chuli is the mountain known as Fluted Peak. Despite the relative ease of access to the Sanctuary this mountain has proven too difficult for most commericial climbing groups who have tended to concentrate their efforts on Tent peak ( Tharpu Chuli in Nepali).  As you approach the Sanctuary and reach the simple lodges at Macchapuchhare base camp little can be seen of the mountain, which is towards the head of the valley, cradling the West Annapurna glaciers. It is the  first summit on the long ridge thrown down from Tarke Kang (Glacier Dome) , which separates the South and West Annapurna Glaciers.

The approach to the first ascent route follows a shelf and a trough above the west bank of the West Annapurna Glacier, skirting round the base of the mountain's rocky east ridge to gain the foot of the North-East Face, which is unseen, even from the moraines above the lodges.

Perhanps the best view of the mountains is from Annapurna South base camp. From the moraines above the lodges the flted South Face presents a "beautiful shape, buttressed by pencil-shadowy ridges of snow and ice," well seen, rising above the ridge connecting it with Tharpu Chuli.

To date, apart from the original route, most efforts to climb the mountain have concentrated on the face and ridges seen from this viewpoint. The South West Ridge, the one that ultimately connects to Tent Peak, is an obvious, albeit cornice, line although a a far more complicated connecting ridge than at first it appears. The terrain between the two peaks  is quite confusing and now at all a straightforward ridge. The fluted face to the right of the ridge , although menaced in places by ice bulges and seracs is seen at a reasonable angle and appears an attractive proposition.

Highlights

This peak is situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary adjoined to Tharpu Chuli and across Hiunchuli peaks. Base camp is set at the altitude of 4350m and then establish two high camps, one at 4,900m at the approach of North East Face and a higher one at 5,500m. On the North East Face of the mountain before the summit is gained. A vertical wall near the summit fronts some technical challenge on this climb. This climb is suggested to only those with some alpine and ice climbing experience.
