The Pinnacle Club Lahaul Expedition (1980)

Eight ladies from the Pinnacle Club led by Sheila Cormack spent a month making an intensive exploration of the peaks surrounding the head of the Gumba Nullah, a branch of the Miyar Nullah which joins the River Chenar at Udaipur. Between them they climbed a total of 14 peaks between 4,800m and 5,900m, all but one of which were thought to be first ascents, as well as several difficult cols looking down into Zaskar to the N. Unfortunately, they did not succeed on the 6,260m 'IMF' peak, which they had booked with the Indian Mountaineering Federation.
