Route Climbed: Standard route Date Climbed: 23 July 2003
My first Himalayan peak bagged. Perfect weather for climbing although we had to make a quick descent as there were some ominous clouds. Mild affects of altitude sickness back at high camp as no acclimatisation prior to climb. All-in-all we climbed Rupal Peak in a four day round trip from Tarashing.
