Himalchuli Attempt. An 11-man Japanese expedition from Gaku- shuin University, led by Hideo Nishigori, failed to climb Himalchuli by its south ridge, which would have been a new route. They placed five camps on the mountain. On May 4 they reached 22,650 feet but the route was more difficult and longer than they had expected.
