Garmo: A Russian expedition under the leadership of Nikolai Vasilevich Krylenko returned late in October after an unsuccessful attempt to climb this, the highest peak in the Russian dominions. They were unable to find a feasible route for a close approach to the peak but claimed to have climbed the next highest summit in the Seltau Range, ca. 22,000 feet. Another group of this same party explored the valleys on the north side of the Peter the Great Range.
