Pumori Pre-Monsoon Ascent and Attempt. An 11-member Italian expedition was led by Ruggero Zanaini. On April 14, Armando Antola, Franco Brunello and Antonello Martines reached the summit via the southeast face to the east ridge. Less successful were four Germans led by Dirk Jensen, who reached a highpoint of 6200 meters on the southeast face on May 8.
