Churen Himal Attempt. A 14-man Italian expedition led by Oliviero Frachey attempted to climb Churen Himal by the southeast ridge of the east peak. They came to Nepal late and allowed insufficient time for their climb. After establishing four high camps, they failed to get higher than 23,300 feet, which they reached on October 26.
