Kun. On August 10, our group, guided by Christian Laplace and me, gathered at Base Camp at 4400 meters on the moraine of the Shafat Glacier. Camp I was placed at 5300 meters. Our plan was to divide into two parties, one of which would move up one day ahead of the other. On August 13 and 14, Camp II was established on the snow plateau to the right of the White Needle. All descended to Base Camp for a rest. Camp III was set up on August 17 on the snow plateau at 6300 meters by the first party. On the 18th, Philippe Andral, Roger Albessard, Jean-Claude Lètetu, Jean-Michel Meunier, Jean Duffort, Frangoise Goudet and I reached the summit in splendid weather. On August 19, Laplace, Danièle Lavalade, Pierre Perisse, Jérome Latrubesse, Pierre Becquet and Sylvain Pigny got to the top.
