Chukutan Peak, First Ascent. It was reported that Spaniards J. Bañales, I. Peribañez, C. Reima, L. Tejada, M. Fernandez and J. Mugara had planned to attempt Spantik, but were forced to change objectives due to snow conditions. They climbed Chukutan Peak (6290 m) and another unnamed peak (6100 m). In both cases they reached the summit ridge but not the main summit due to complicated, and dangerous, ridge traverses up to them. (Desnivel)
