Central Peak of Annapurna South or Moditse. Uzo Tada led four other members of the Doryu Alpine Club. They attacked the east ridge. On October 21 Yoshio Yamamoto and Kozu Yoshida reached the central peak (23,458 feet) of Annapurna South from the north. Owing to lack of time, they gave up climbing on to the highest peak of Annapurna South. (This summit is northeast of the main peak. See the map in Craig Anderson’s article in this Journal.)
