Nilgiri South. Four Japanese led by Kenji Ohama got to 5900 meters on the unclimbed south face of Nilgiri South on October 26 when they decided the unstable rock was too dangerous. They had been at Base Camp since September 12 waiting for favorable weather. When it finally came, it was very late in the climbing period. They made Advance Base and Camp I and turned back just two pitches below the site for Camp II.
