Climbers from Arunachal Pradesh prove mettle in Climbathon 2013-

Women Everesters from Arunachal Pradesh — Anshu Jamsenpa and Tine Mena — once again did their state proud by successfully scaling the BaraShigri glacier, the second longest glacier in the world, recently.

The event was Climbathon 2013 hosted by the Indian Mountaineering Foundation. While Anshu conquered the 21,929-ft peak of Shigri Parvat on August 4 at 11am, Tine reached the summit of Kullu Pumori, which is at a height of 21,625 ft, at 10am in the Bara Shigri glacier. The duo had to climb the snow-clad peak continuously for over 17 hours nonstop at the end of their attempt.

Climbathon 2013 was flagged off on July 20 from the Atal Bihari Vajpai Mountaineering Institute, Manali, by Col HS Chauhan, president of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation. The event ended with the successful scaling of a total of five peaks, including Khangsering (20,552 ft) and two virgin peaks at 20,757 ft and 20,585 ft, respectively. The highlight of the expedition was that it was done in alpine style, where the climbers carry their food, shelter, equipment and other requirements along with them.
