Chaturangi III (“Toledo Peak”), First Ascent. Chaturangi III (6393 m) lies in the Khalipet Bamak in the Gangotri area. A 10-member Spanish team from the city of Toledo led by Jose Maria Jayare approached the peak via Vasuki Tal during the month of May and made the first ascent on May 18 by the south and the southwest ridge. The ascent consisted primarily of snow up to 70 degrees and was mostly moderate with unstable cornices. The lone summitter was Vidal Miguel Angel. Members of the expedition were Javier Jayme, Jose Maria Janme, Perla Banagan, Jose Romera, Francisco Balaguer, Luis Cowacho, Miguel Angle Vidal, Jose Ramon Bacelan and Maximo Mrucia.
