Shigrila Attempt, Lahoul. An expedition led by me and composed of Britons Tony and Vicky Cuddy, Neal and Geraldine Goldsmith and Swede Nils Sjostrom attempted the south ridge of Shigrila (6247 meters, 20,496 feet) in June. We fixed 400 feet of rope but gave up the attempt at 19,000 feet because of technical difficulty. The mountain is still unclimbed.
