The first ascent of Nanda Devi (25,645') with Arthur Emmons, Charles Houston, and Noel Odell, in 1936, without the use of crampons or pitons! Both Tilman and Odell reached the summit. Houston is, of course, also known for his feats on K2 in 1936 and 1938. Odell was a member of the British Everest expedition of 1924 and was the last person to see Mallory and Irvine alive. Nanda Devi remained the highest summit climbed until 1950 when it was surpassed by Annapurna. Neate T35, Yak T76.
