Abi Gamin, 1988. An Indian expedition led by Bilwanath Ghosh climbed Abi Gamin. Camp V was established at 22,400 feet on September 15, 1988. After a day confined to their tents by the weather, on the 17th, Miss Anita Sarkar and Sherpas Kami and Phurba climbed to the summit of Abi Gamin (7355 meters, 24,130 feet). They were accompanied as far as Meade’s Col (23,600 feet) by Gopal Chandra Pal and Sherpas Lhakpa, Mingma and Pasang, who pitched Camp VI on the col. Their attempts on Kamet on the two successive days failed in bad weather.
