Kula Kangri, Third Ascent. It was reported that a Spanish expedition made the third ascent of Kula Kangri (7554m) in May. Base camp was established on May 4; by May 15, a route that roughly followed the west ridge had been established to Camp II at 6450 meters, and on the 18th, with a break in the weather, the team reached the summit. They also reported ascending two unclimbed subsidiary summits to the east, one (Kula Kangri II?) at 7430 meters, and the other (Kula Kangri III?) at 7150 meters. (High Mountain Sports 186)
