Mt. Kamet: An English expedition led by Mr. Frank S. Smythe successfully assaulted this Himalayan peak (25,447 feet) and effected two ascents of the world’s highest yet climbed summit. It was favored with good weather conditions and like several other recent expeditions to the Himalaya used skis to great advantage. On June 21st, 1931, Messrs. Frank S. Smythe, E. E. Shipton, R. L. Holdsworth and the porters Lewa and Nima Dorji reached the top and were followed two days later by Capt. E. St.J. Birney, Dr. R. Green and the porter Kesar Singh.
