Koz Sar or P 6885 Attempt. A 15-man Japanese expedition led by Keiichi Tsukamoto was given permission to climb Koz Sar (6677 meters, 21,906 feet). The peak which they say they attempted was P 6885 (22,490 feet) on the ridge line between Batura and Kampire Dior above the Kukuar Glacier. It lies some 20 miles southeast of Koz Sar. They reached 20,550 feet on the west ridge, which they reached from the south, before they ran out of time.
