Kamet, India - Piolets d'Or 2013

One of the 6 winners of the Piolets d'Or 2013. Kamet is the highest mountain in India for which it is currently possible to gain a permit, and the ca 2,000m southwest face was previously unattempted. After establishing an advanced base in the glacier bowl below this steep mixed wall, France's Sébastien Bohin, Didier Jourdain, Sébastien Moatti and Sébastien Ratel climbed it, alpine-style, in five days. They found conditions excellent and connected a succession of steep snow fields linked by often vertical ice pitches to reach a bivouac on the south ridge at 7,500m. The summit day presented unexpected difficulties, after which the team descended to the bivouac and next day went down the previously untouched south face.
