Gangotri I and Rudugaira. A second Indian Mountaineering Foundation Pre-Everest Expedition climbed Gangotri I (6672 meters, 21,890 feet) on October 15, 16, and 17, when eleven men and three women reached the summit. Eleven members also climbed Rudugaira (5819 meters, 19,420 feet) on October 9. Gangotri II was attempted on October 21, but deteriorating weather drove them back.
