Thanks for the nice comment!
The frequent storms last spring kept quite a few parties from summiting. We were lucky, and got one OK day on which we climbed the nice SE face, the face that formes the famous siluette of the peak.
However, we too had to abandon all our plans for the surrounding peaks near Dhimara-Khok.
