Trip Reports : India
Thalay Sagar

Kevin Mahoney reports on his Lyman Spitzer Award supported trip to the Indian Himalaya with partner Ben Gilmore.  While they were not able to summit, their alpine style, single-push attempt was impressive nonetheless!  Read on for Kevin's report.

Ben Gilmore and I attempted a new line on the on the North face of Thalay Sagar 6903M in the Garhwal Himalaya of India.  The line had previously been tried by an American team and a New Zealand team.  On our attempt, we made it to approximately 6000M before being turned around by a storm.  The line follows the major weakness to the West of the central buttress that was climbed by a Russian team led by Alexander Klenov in 1998.
