Delhi section talk - Climb of Fluted Peak

The illustrated talk 'The Climb of Fluted Peak' covers the recent climb by a four-member team of the 'Fluted Peak' (6139m) in Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. The peak is located to the south-east of Karcha Parbat at the Lahul and Spiti watershed in the Spiti Valley, and is best accessed from the Losar Valley. The climb had several challenging moments, including some reasonably technical sections as well. The region is seldom visited and required developing the trail right from the onset. The team set up four camps along the way to finally successfully scale the snow-clad fluted peak. Prithvi Singh Gill looks forward to sharing his experience on how he trained and his personal journey and learnings from the climb.
