Plateau Peak, attempt. A 15-member Indo-Italian expedition attempted unclimbed Plateau Peak (7,310m), which lies southwest of Saser Kangri I (7,672m) in the Saser group. Jointly led by M.S. Gomese and Marco Meazzini, the team established base camp at 4,700m and an advanced base at 5,400m on the Central South Phukpoche Glacier. During August they equipped the slopes leading to the crest of the west ridge with ropes and food dumps, but bad weather prevented progress above 5,800m.
