Cerro Kishtwar

A previous attempt to make the first truly alpine-style ascent of this 6,200m peak had failed after 17 days when the team ran out of food. The summit was reached by two of this four-man team in a little over a week by means of a very steep route slanting left to right on the NW face and then crossing the N ridge to reach the summit via the NE face.
