Pharchamo Peak lies in the south of Tashi Lapcha. Seen from the pass the mountain is an attractive but straightforward snow peak with a well-defined ridge rising from the relative flat, crevassed glacier. From the high camp near the Tashi Lapcha we cross wide, crevassed snow slopes to gain the ride of Pachermo, rising from the broken glacier of the pass. The ridge can be followed with little difficulty although in some conditions crevasses might give problems towards the summit. Several parties have reported a difficult ice step caused by a large crevasse about 300ft from the summit.
