Trekked in from Jammu up the Chenab river valley into Zanskar. Over Hagsu la to Zanskar valley. Turned north to Abring and followed stream left (west) up the valley to convergance of 3 glaciers. A beautiful place. A full day with 3pm departure to cross glacier prep for early am ascent. Route follows prominent curving right hand gully to summit. Climbed in on a whim with 2 clients both from the UK. First American ascent and 3rd and 4th Brit ascent. Left some woolly dachstien mitts up on top under a stone. Will someone get them for me please. Interesting to note was with a party of 16 persons with trek I oranganized with my company Capricorn Adventure.
