Thamserku Attempt. A Spanish expedition was led by José Luis Fernández. The three other members, José Manuel González, Srta Azucena López and Miguel Angel Rodríguez, got to 6300 meters on the new route they were attempting, the west face, on October 27. They descended the next morning because their stove at their highest bivouac was broken. They could not climb again because of their fixed date to leave Nepal.
