Lady Finger or Bublimotin, Bubli Motin, Bublimating is a distinctive rock spire in the Batura Muztagh, the westernmost subrange of the Karakorum Range in Pakistan.
It lies on the southwest ridge of the Ultar SAR massif, the most southeasterly of the major groups of the Batura Muztagh.
The whole massif rises precipitously above the Hunza Valley to the southeast. Bublimotin, while having little prominence above the saddle with nearby Hunza Peak, is particularly notable for being a sharp, relatively snow-less rock spire among snow peaks. This, combined with its height above the valley, makes it quite eye-catching; hence the distinctive name. It provides a 600m (1830 ft) rock climb (with a very serious alpine approach) and has been the scene of some notable paragliding.
