Tilitso Post-Monsoon Ascents and Attempt. Tilitso (7134 meters, 23,405 feet) was successfully climbed by three expeditions in the fall. All were by the northeast spur to the north ridge. Led by Hubert Fritzenwallner, a group of 9 Austrians completed the 19th ascent of the mountain on October 10 when Fräulein Barbara Brunner, Siegfried Scherer and Franz Schratl reached the top; they were followed the next day by leader Fritzenwallner. Canadian Stephen Adamson led 6 Canadians and 2 Americans. On October 10, Canadians Don Belliveau, Norman Watts and American Mark Miller summited. An expedition of 5 Spaniards under the leadership of Miguel Angel Martín put the leader Martín, Pedro Redondo and Jorge Sánchez on the summit also on October 10. Under the leadership of Scot Colin Scott, 11 Britons failed to climb the south ridge, getting to 6600 meters on October 18.
