Asia, Nepal, Baruntse Attempt

Baruntse Attempt. A ten-person French expedition failed to climb Baruntse. After establishing two high camps, the leader Robert Maudin, his wife Marie- Claire and Pierre Robin reached a high point of 20,675 feet on October 11. The climb was abandoned the next day because of too much deep snow.
