Trisul Solo. Our Ladies’ Trisul Expedition, led by me, climbed Trisul by the normal route. On the approach, since the Dharansi Pass was snowbound, we ascended the lower Rishi Ganga route. We established Base Camp on June 4. For the first attempt, camps were at 18,000, 20,025 and 21,500 feet. A team was beaten back by weather 750 feet from the summit on June 8. On the second attempt, camps were at 19,000 and 22,000 feet. Miss Chaula Jagirdar reached the summit (7120 meters, 23,360 feet) at 12:30 P.M. on June 15.
