Jethibohurani or Nampa South Attempt. Yasuo Ohsumi led eight climbers from Nagoya University. Their aim was to climb Jethibohurani or Nampa South (22,802 feet). They placed Base Camp at 12,300 feet on its west side. They reached 20,175 feet on October 27. Sherpa Ang Temba’s death at Camp II from pleurisy and a four-day storm prevented further attempts.
