Dunagiri (mountain)

Dunagiri (7,066 m) is one of the high peaks of the Garhwal Himalayas in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand. It lies at the northwest corner of the Sanctuary Wall, a ring of peaks surrounding Nanda Devi and enclosing the Nanda Devi Sanctuary.

Dunagiri was first climbed on July 5, 1939[1] by the Swiss climbers Andr Roch, F. Steuri, and D. Zogg, via the southwest ridge. In 1975, Joe Tasker and Dick Renshaw climbed a particularly difficult route on the southeast buttress in a significant milestone for alpine-style climbing.[2] In 1978 the first Australian Himalayan expedition by the Australian National University Mountaineering Club made the fourth ascent via the south-west ridge[3]. Lincoln Hall and Tim Maccartney-Snape made the final summit attempt with Maccartney-Snape successfully summiting.
