In 1961, the 15 member Royal Air Force Karakoram expedition, which also included Squadron Lead Shah Khan, Flight Lieutnent Beg of Pakistan Air Force and Sahib Shah of the Survey of Pakistan entered Hushe Valley to survey and climb K6 Peak from Nangmah valley. But it gave the mission later. A survey party was, however left behind to map Chogolisa, Gondokhoro and Masherbrum glaciers. The party the climbed smaller peaks like Hunch Back, Etwar and Mitre (different from famous Mitre Peak near Concordia).

In 1964, the Germans from Berlin Mountaineering expedition tried to climb K-6 from Kondus Galcier. The party could go up to 6,706m before it gave up the attempt because of bad weather.
