Asia, Pakistan, Nanga Parbat Attempt

Nanga Parbat Attempt. The French couple, Liliane and Maurice Barrard, did not succeed in getting to the summit of Nanga Parbat in June, but they made a variant on the Diamir route. They climbed a gully and couloir to the left of the usual route and rejoined the normal way 2000 feet higher. They made two summit attempts which were stopped at 26,100 and 25,750 feet.
