Unnamed Peak (6248 m), first ascent. This peak lies southeast of Ramjak on the opposite side of the valley and was climbed for the first time on August 15 by Indians, Nitin Gandhi, Paresh Rathod, and Sudhir Raut. These three set up base camp at Chuminakpo (4660m) then continued up valley towards the Shingo La. Moving east, they climbed to a high camp at ca 5410m, from where they ascended steep slopes to a col. The summit was just 200m above them and was gained in poor weather.
