Brammah Peak. The expedition of Tohokeiryukai was led by Miss Kei Ohara, who was accompanied by Nagamasa Yamada, Hisabumi Tomino, and Kaoru Yoshino. Matsel was their first objective but it was changed because of bad weather and the group turned to nearby Brammah Peak (21,275 feet) in Padar. When they had reached a point 350 feet below the summit, an accident happened to a Sherpa and they bivouacked on the spot. The next day, June 24, the leader slipped and fell down the 6500-foot snow slope. They searched for her for three days but in vain.
