Chacraraju, East Ridge Attempt. A Yugoslavian expedition of the Akademsko Planinsko Drustvo of Ljubljana was led by Aleksander Blazina. On July 4 Igor Golli died after falling 1300 feet down the south face of Chacraraju when he was pulled from his belay near the rock band on the east ridge. Later other members of the expedition unsuccessfully attempted Huascarán and climbed the southwest ridge of Chopicalqui on July 18.
