Asia, Nepal, Gaurishankar Attempt

Gaurishankar Attempt. A seven-man Austrian expedition led by Franz Huber attempted the southwest ridge of Gaurishankar but reached only 19,000 feet. Very strong winds on the night of April 19 to 20 destroyed so many tents and ruined so much equipment that the expedition could no longer proceed.
