Asia, Pakistan, Bojohaghur Duan Asir I

Bojohaghur Duan Asir I. Six Japanese climbers led by Muneo Uyeda failed to climb Bojohaghur Duan Asir I (7329 meters, 24,046 feet). They approached the mountain up the Ultar Glacier from Hunza and attempted the south side. Base Camp at 12,950 feet was established on June 9 and Camps I and II at 14,450 and 16,750 feet. Then the weather went bad. Camp III was placed on the southwest col at 19,525 feet only on July 19. The high point of the expedition was not much higher. The route was threatened by rockfall and three members were hit.
