For a mountain like Mustagh Tower you should be completely fit and ready. Beside endurance exercises (running, mountain bike etc...) the all-day mountain climbing is the best training.
On 1oth of June Dejan and Pavle made a rare free ascent of Direct route (VII+, blue line on photo) in 600 m east face of Stenar (2501 m) , neighbour of Slovenian highest mountain Triglav. There's a slide show available about their climb.
Three weeks later, Pavle and Grega climbed a line left of Direct route in the same face. The route was interesting, with some nice passages up to VII, but later they discovered that it's not completely new. A perfect training for Mustagh, anyway...
