Asia, India–Garhwal, Dunagiri

Dunagiri. Polish students led by Grzegorz Benke repeated the original Swiss route and made what is probably the seventh ascent of Dunagiri (7066 meters, 23,183 feet). Benke and Andrzej Hartmann reached the summit on August 18 after nights in camps at 19,000 and 19,700 feet and bivouacs at 21,000 and 22,300 feet. They bivouacked on the descent at 22,300 feet. On August 13 Marek Lukaszewski climbed Hanuman (6075 meters, 19,931 feet). They climbed in the monsoon; they are sure that the best weather for climbing in the region seems to be from June to September.
