Cho Oyu, South Face Attempt. Six Italians led by Toni Klingendrath failed to climb the south face of Cho Oyu. Two members reached 21,325 feet on October 6 and another two the same point on October 12. They gave up the climb on October 20 after constant heavy snowfall when the liaison officer said that their permitted time had expired.
