Diran. Two successful climbs of Diran (7257 meters, 23,810 feet) have been reported in 1991. An Italian expedition was led by Martino Moretti. Moretti, D. Deianna and P. Paglino took six days to ascend the north ridge. The ridge rises 2200 meters and is five kilometers long. Much of the ice is of 60° and some is vertical. Meanwhile, G. and T. Corbellini, M. Melacarne, D. Saettone and A. Zucchetti climbed the normal west ridge. A Spanish team under the leadership of Pere Gelis was also successful, but details are lacking. A French expedition led by Philippe Allibert failed.
