Ladies Scottish Climbing Club Nepal

This was the first all women's expedition to the Himalaya. The team of three visited the previously unmapped Phurbal Chyachumbu glacier. Here they made the first ascent of Gyalgen Peak (6151m) on the border of Nepal and Tibet. They named the mountain in honour of their sirdar who they described as "a fine mountaineer".
