Devban, second ascent? An Indo-Tibet Border Police Expedition led by Y.S. Sandhu made what was probably the first ascent of this 6,852m peak south east of Kamet since Frank Smythe climbed it in 1937, although in the meantime several false claims have been made. The strong ITBP team reached the top on September 19. The summiters were Mohammed Ali, Tashi Motop, Jyot Singh and Vijender Singh. Approaching from the east, they climbed the south ridge.
