"Monsoon season upon us, the clouds closed in, and our native companions told us to summit this time of year would be a stroke of luck. After months of planning and days at high camp, having been only several hundred meters from the summit for ice collections, we abandoned our bid for Rupal Peak." While they didn't reach their summit, Pericles Niarchos and Clint Montague collected ice samples from a crevasse at 16,000 feet for the Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation Snow & Ice Project, contributing valuable data for research on high altitude glacial thinning.
