Asia, China, Mustagh Ata

Mustagh Ata. Our expedition consisting of Ann Smith, Bob Allison, Bob East, Dr. Kent Davidson, Mary Ann Davidson and me arrived at Base Camp at 15,400 feet on July 24. During the next ten days we established five high camps. On August 4 Ann Smith and I made it to the summit from our 21,200-foot High Camp. We had four fairly good days out of 18 on the mountain. Three other teams arrived at Base Camp after us: 19 Italians, 8 Japanese and 4 from Hong Kong. Another American team led by Phil Ershler was scheduled to arrive after we left.
