Asia, India—Kashmir and Jammu, Nun and Kun Group

Nun and Kun Group. Each year, there are a number of foreign expeditions which hope to make ascents in this group. In 1990, few seem to have been successful. Spaniards led by José López Gros and Italians led by Eliano Passa did not reach the summit of Nun. Jean-Pierre Frachon’s French group was successful. On August 19, Frachon, Philippe and Isabelle Battu and Albert Crocombette got to the summit. We have yet to hear from British led by Alan Burgess. On Kun, French led by C. Laplace did not reach the summit. Spaniards were led by Guillem Arias. N. Closa and C. Canals reached 5700 meters on the northwest buttress of Nun. Heinz Kliem and his Germans failed on Pinnacle Peak.
