Baruntse. The seven-man Chiba University expedition was led by Hideaki Yoshinaga. They climbed the southeast ridge, the same route as used by the New Zealanders in 1954 and the Japanese last autumn and winter. After establishing four camps above Base Camp, Nobukazu Toiumi and a Sherpa reached the summit on April 24 and Haruo Kuroki and Fumitaka Sakurai on the 25th.
