" Some mountaineers are proud of having done all their climbs without bivouac. How much they have missed ! And the same applies to those who enjoy only rock climbing, or only the ice climbs, onyl the ridges or faces. We should refuse none of the thousands and one joys that the mountains offer us at every turn. We should brush nothing aside, set no restrictions. We should experience hunger and thirst, be able to go fast, but also to go slowly and to contemplate." -Gaston R-ffat (1921-985).

TOPIC: Two Indian mountaineers scale an unexplored peak, name it 'Mt. Kalam'

Two Indian mountaineers scale an unexplored peak, name it 'Mt. Kalam' 4 years, 6 months ago #1125

Arjun Vajpai and Bhupesh Kumar, two mountaineers from Noida and Bulandshahr respectively, created history by becoming the first persons to climb a 6180m high unnamed peak in Himachal’s Spiti Valley. The duo have named the peak ‘Mt. Kalam’, in honour of India’s former president, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. ‘Mt. Kalam’ is situated near the Bara Shigri glacier.
