Pumori. Our party consisted of American Scott Woolums, Australians Richard Howes, Armando Corvini, Matt Godbold, Ray Vran, Andrew Lock and me as leader. We climbed Pumori directly up the south ridge from Kala Pattar. We placed Advance Base, Camp I and II and a bivouac at 18,500, 20,300, 21,800 and 22,500 feet on September 27, 30, October 8 and 10. (The bivouac was made by the second summit group.) On October 10, Woolums and Vran got to the summit and on the 11th, Howes and Corvini.
