Ronti. A ladies’ expedition to Ronti (19,893 feet) was organized at my residence and my wife, Mrs. Sujaya Guha, accompanied the team as manager. The other members were Misses Deepali Sinha, leader, Sudipta Sen Gupta, Lakshmi Pal, Swapna Nandy, Swapna Mitra, Shila Ghosh and Indira Biswas. Dr. Dipak Shinha was the only male member. They established Base Camp (13,500 feet) at Rajgher on October 19, Camp I (15,000 feet) on the 21st, Camp II (16,500 feet) on the 23rd, and Camp III (18,200 feet) at the foot of the north face of Ronti on October 27. The peak was climbed on the 28th by Miss Swapta Mitra and two Sherpas. This was the first ladies' expedition from West Bengal.
