Asia, India–Kumaon and Garhwal, Hardeol and Tirsuli

Hardeol and Tirsuli. A 43-member team from the Indian Border Security Force was led by S.C. Negi. On September 24, T.R. Angdoo, Jumma Khan, Jamuna Prasad, Naresh Singh and S.D. Thomas climbed over a 22,500-foot foresummit and reached the summit (7151 meters, 23,460 feet) of Hardeol. The following day, Angdoo, S. Gombu, Raymond Jacob, Jumma Khan and Nandan Singh climbed Tirsuli (7074 meters, 23,460 feet). [Though no routes were given, it is probable that since two men made the ascents in successive days, they must have climbed from the col between the two peaks.—Editor.]
