Gangapurna. A Japanese expedition from Osaka led by Toshio Noshi made a successful ascent of Gangapurna (24,457 feet) by the east ridge, the same route followed by the Germans in 1965. From their highest camp, Camp III at 20,675 feet, Takeshi Kikusawa and Shinsuke Fujiwara climbed to the summit on May 13 via the 22,500-foot col between Gangapurna and Annapurna III.
