Mount Paget, Fourth Ascent. It was reported that American Skip Novak, Britain Mark Strafford, Germans Gerhard Schmatz, Martin Anwander and Hans Engl, and Austrian Robert Schabetsberg ascended the unclimbed Northeast Face of Mount Paget (2934 meters) at the end of January. On January 25, after two days of load carrying, three days of bad weather and another day to move camp to 1200 meters, they reached the summit (2935 meters), then descended along the Northeast Ridge.
