Hanuman Tibba. Hanuman Tibba (19,450 feet) was climbed on July 11, 1971 by Nick DeLisa, Susan and Gordon Jarrell, Sara Officer, Pat Ophuls, Chris Pizzo and me with Dhan Khumar Sherpa and Rinzing Ladakhi of the Western Himalayas Mountaineering Institute. We went up the Ravi River to the moraine west of the peak and then around its main south ridge to a glacier camp at 17,000 feet. The summit was a 13-hour round trip from this camp. It appears to be the first ascent by an American party.
