Tent Peak is also known as Tharpu Chuli. It is situated in the Annapurna region of Nepal at the head of the Annapurna Sanctuary. It was first climbed on (but not summited) by Colonel Jimmy Roberts in 1956 during an exploration of the area prior to a British expedition to Machapuchhre in 1957. The peak was first summited in 1964 by a Japanese group on an expedition to Annapurna South led by Dr. Haruo Higuchi. They climbed the South East Ridge, Alpine Grade AD and this is the sloping skyline to the right of the main photo. The easier North West Ridge, Alpine Grade PD, is to the left of the main photo and was first climbed by Gunter Hauser and a German party in 1965.
