Mukut Parvat East, First Ascent. A Korean team made an important and difficult first ascent in July and August when Oksun Hong led an expedition to Mukut Parvat East (7130m). Two members of the team reached the summit. The team accessed the peak through the West Kamet Glacier. This was the last virgin 7000-meter peak in the Garhwal.
