Publication Year: 1980.

Brammah’s Wife, Kishtwar Himal, 1978. A nine-person expedition from Lublin, led by Walenty Fiut, was active in the Nanth Nala. On September 23, 1978, Fiut, Waldemar Falczynski and Barbara Wilk climbed virgin P 5200 (17,061 feet). A first attempt on Brammah’s Wife (17,320 feet) failed in bad weather. On the 25th Fiut, Andrzej Agres, Frzysztof Poleszak and Piotr Porada again attacked this sharp, difficult peak. They worked through the crevassed glacier below the northwest face to bivouac and got up the face to the west col the next day. On September 27 they climbed the very steep rock-and-ice ridge to the virgin summit. Two days later Falczynski and Ryszard Ziemiakowicz repeated the ascent.
