Mukar Beh, Hanuman Tibba, Kulu. On October 14 Corradino Rabbi, leader, Bruno China, assistant leader, Alberto Re, the Ladakhi porter Wangyal and I made the third ascent of Mukar Beh (19,910 feet). We climbed the peak with three high camps, starting from the Solang valley. Rabbi, China, Giamba Campiglia, Re and Wangyal climbed Hanuman Tibba (19,450 feet) by a new route, the north ridge. They left Base Camp at 11,700 feet and climbed to a bivouac on the Solang Pass north of the peak at 16,400 feet. The north ridge was first snow-covered rock and then a final ice ridge. They bivouacked again 500 feet below the summit on a shelf carved out of the east face. They reached the summit at 11:30 A.M. on October 20. Also taking part in the expedition were Dr. Paolo Stani, and Annabella and Ottavio Bastrenta.
