Lampak II Attempt. An Indian expedition from Bombay, composed of leader Ajit C. Shelat, Raju Waldalkar, Ajay Tambe and Prashant Bhagdikar, explored the previously unvisited Kalla Bank (glacier), north of Nanda Devi. Two attempts were made on Lampak II (6181 meters, 20,280 feet), both aborted in pre-monsoon bad weather. A high point of 5880 meters was reached.
