Mount Forel. An expedition from the Omon Alpine Club of Nippon University was under the leadership of Gi Miyahara. This was the first Japanese expedition to Greenland. They left Japan on June 28 for Angmagsalik via Moscow and Iceland. They were active on the ice from July 27, studying meteorology, topography and glaciology. They tried Mount Forel (11,024 feet) but they were forced back from the top of the peak some 1350 feet below it owing to the fierce snowstorm.
