Singu Chuli (6,501 m) was formerly known as Fluted Peak. Wolf Noyce and David Cox using the North–East Face and the top section of the East Ridge, made the first ascent of this peak. This mountain has proven to be very difficult to climb for most commercial climbing groups who have tried to concentrate on Tent Peak.
Singu Chuli is the first summit on the long ridge cascading down from Tarke Kang (Glacier Dome), which separates the South and West Annapurna Glaciers. Annapurna South Base Camp provides the best distant view of the mountain.
To date, apart from the original route, most efforts to climb this mountain have concentrated on the face and ridges seen from this viewpoint. The southwest ridge of the mountain connects with Tent Peak. The terrain between the two mountains is a confusing one and the ridge is not straight.
