Gaugiri, second ascent of southwest ridge. On August 27 Austrians Johannes Mihatsch, Anna and Edmund Wirbel, together with Guna Bahadur Tamang and Pisail Tamang made the fourth overall ascent of Gaugiri (6,110m) but the second ascent of the original route up the south west ridge climbed in May 2002 by Peter Ackroyd and Jim Frush. This peak lies more or less on the Mustang-Tibet border well north (15–18km) of the main area of the Damodar.
