Asia, Nepal, Baudha

Baudha. The Aichi University of Education Expedition had as leader Yutaka Nakai, as climbing leader Toshihiko Hanai and three other members. They made the second ascent of Baudha (21,890 feet) by a new route, the southeast ridge. Mixed ice and rock between Camps II and III were particularly difficult. From Camp IV at 19,700 feet on April 12 Katsumi Sugiura, Kazuo Tokoshima and Karma Sherpa climbed to the summit, followed there the next day by Hanai and Sherpas Phur Kibo and Jangbu.
