Churen Himal Attempt. A French expedition led by Gérard Grossan attempted Churen Himal (7371 meters, 24,184 feet) by the southeast face to the east ridge, hoping to reach the east peak. After establishing five camps, they reached 23,450 feet on November 3, but they gave up defeated by a very long route, no Sherpas, few remaining supplies and frequent snowfalls.
