Exploration of a side valley branching from the Darcha-Mayar Valley in Himalchal Pradesh, and ascent of a peak of 6010m. A camp was established at the foot of the mountain, and a higher camp on the S Ridge at 5730m. After a windy and snowy night the weather improved, and Bill McConachie followed the S Ridge to the summit. At the summit he found bamboo wands, probably from an unofficial ascent from the Shingo La side. The team descended to ABC. Steve Kennedy and Paul Swienton later climbed a smaller peak of about 5300m. An attempt on a peak of 5970m failed because of dangerous snow.
