Lampak II (6181m), ascent. All seven members of an Indian expedition led by Swaraj Ghosh made the probable third ascent of this peak between the Siruanch and Kalla Glaciers above the road head at Malari. Base camp was established on August 29 at 4500m and the summit reached via the southeast ridge on September 5. Apart from the leader the other summiteers, all from West Bengal, were Sibrata Banerjee, B. Biswas, Gautam Chatterjee, Anal Das, B. Jetty, and N. P. Rao.
