 In May-June 2016 Susan Jensen and Anindya 'Raja' Mukherjee set off to explore a series of sub-6000m peaks in Garwhal, south of the Panpatia Glacier, that looked interesting, pointy and possibly even a bit technical. A few people had been through - Martin Moran, of course, as well as Raja himself in the exploration of Panpatia Col, but much territory remained untracked and sub-glaciers a bit sketchy. Alas, they remain a bit sketchy as one of the team became quite ill. I'll show potential climbing objectives in a reasonably accessible part of the Indian Himalaya, and describing what a ruptured pulmonary hydatid cyst does to your acclimatisation.
