Asia, Nepal, Churen Himal

Churen Himal South. On April 29 South Korean Kim Ho Sup and Sherpa Rin Sing Angyal left Camp VI at 21,650 feet and made the first ascent of Churen Himal South (24,184 (?) feet). The expedition was led by Kim Jung Sup and left Pokhara on April 9 and took six days to get to Base Camp in the Kapre Khola. (The Japanese Shizuoka expedition states that the Koreans were on the 23,000-foot east peak and that the route they claim to have taken seems impossible.)
