Tagne 2001

These young climbers, some on their first foray outside Europe, hoped to make the first ascent of Tagne, 6,111m, in the Lahul/Spoti region. With mostly good weather, they achieved this via its South Ridge at an estimated Scottish II, Alpine AD. They also made what they think was the first ascent of another 6,030m peak via its East Ridge at AD. They named the peak 'Sagar', which is Hindustani for 'Ocean'.
