Putha Hiunchuli. An expedition led by Nicolaas van Lookern Campagne climbed Putha Hiunchuli (7246 meters, 23,775 feet) by the south ridge to the south face, much the same route as that climbed in 1972, 1978 and 1979. Netherlander Dr. Rinus Lamers, Luxemburger Roland Zeyen and Sherpa Ang Temba reached the summit on October 18. A second party was turned back some 250 feet below the summit by fierce winds.
