Caullaraju. The Edelweiss Club’s all-women’s expedition successfully climbed Caullaraju ( 18,655 feet; first ascent on July 14, 1962 by Domingos Giobbi, Emilio and Macario Angeles). From a camp at 16,750 feet the climb was made on May 22 by Ryuko Matsuda with two others and on May 24 by Tamiko Miura and two others. In July they attempted Pucaranra but failed about 350 feet from the top where they met a huge crevasse. The leader was Tokiko Sakakura and other members were Dr. Ysune Kuroishi, Fumiko Suzuki, Hiroko Nemoto and Tsuta Ohsawa.
