Dhhun, First Ascent. Dhhun (6200m), which means “guardian,” was first climbed in August via the north face by a Japanese expedition led by Tsuneo Suzuki. The top was thought to have been reached on August 6 by three members and three high-altitude porters; on August 8, four members along with four porters realized the earlier group had only reached a subsummit and continued the one-kilometer walk to the main summit.
