Asia, India–Kashmir and Ladakh, Kun and Nun

Kun and Nun. These two high peaks are being climbed frequently. An Austrian group led by Günther Hochhauser made its first attempt on July 24 but only Hans Stadlbauer got to the summit of Kun (7087 meters, 23,250 feet). The next day five more climbed to the top. On July 11 Austrians Walter Knezicek and Ignaz Gruber and Swiss Dr. Veronika Merz climbed Nun (7135 meters, 23,410 feet). On August 28 four of a five-man Japanese team reached the summit via the northeast ridge.
