Churen Himal. Ryoten Hasegawa and Terayaki Kono reached this 24,184-foot summit via the west ridge on May 13. Nearly a month after leaving Kathmandu, the 10-man team led by Sinichi Nakajima set up Base Camp on April 7. Heavy snowfalls delayed the approach. Camps I (15,425 feet), III (21,450 feet) and IV (22,650 feet) were established on April 11, May 6 and May 12 respectively. The expedition was organized by the Meiji University Alpine Club of Japan.
