Manaslu Attempt by Czech Women. This expedition of eight women and four men was led by Dr. Margita Šterbova. They had originally planned to try the south ridge but they turned to the standard northeast ridge. They established four camps and climbed some with the Austrians, using their fixed ropes. Three members reached 23,625 feet on October 17 and 22.
