Merci Peak Group, Ascent. In October, Michal Brunner, Jiri Svejda and I climbed the 1200- meter west face of a ca. 6200-meter summit in the Mera Peak group. The wall lies right above the village of Tangnang. We do not know if it was a first ascent or not. We climbed the northwest pillar; our grade for the most difficult spot was VII-, and ice to 70 degrees. The climb took six days.
