Tela 2, attempt. A Polish expedition led by 70-year-old Andrez Zoinski and comprising 10 members attempted unclimbed Tela 2 (6,035m) on the Tela Glacier. After traveling by road over the Rohtang Pass and across Lahaul to Darcha, they trekked northeast to the Tela Glacier. This glacier has 10 peaks almost in a ring, and they are numbered from one to 10. The Poles attempted the north face of T-2 during August. However, they were hampered by bad weather and were only able to reach a height of 5,500m.
