Asia, Himalayas, India, Siniolchu

Siniolchu. This outstandingly beautiful mountain was ascended again this past summer. A group of three German climbers, Ludwig Schmaderer, Herbert Paidar, and Ernst Grob, made a trip through the Sikkim Himalaya in September, 1937, during which their climbing efforts were constantly frustrated by bad weather or worse snow conditions. They attempted the Twins and Nepal Peak twice, each time being turned back by the weather or dangerous snow conditions. Finally on September 25th, 1937, they succeeded in making with the porter, Pency, the second ascent of Siniolchu.
