Abi Gamin. The Bengal Royal Engineers Kamet-Abi Gamin expedition under the leadership of Major N. D. Jayal made the second ascent of Abi Gamin (24,130 ft.) in Gahrwal. After getting to within 100 feet of the top on June 16th on the east ridge, a smaller party consisting of Jayal, Sherpa Pemba, and Garhwali Pooran Singh climbed to the summit by the south face. This is a different route from that taken by the Anglo-Swiss party in 1950 who climbed from the Tibetan side.
