Asia, Nepal, Himalchuli

Himalchuli. The Meiji University Expedition was led by Toyozo Sugasawa in an attempt on the east ridge of Himalchuli (25,895 feet). This expedition had official permission for a reconnaissance but with permission to try for the summit if it seemed possible! Camp VI was placed at 22,300 feet on May 11 but the next day Yoshiharu Kondo was killed in an avalanche there and the expedition was abandoned.
