Nanga Parbat Attempt. A seven-member Polish party, led by Kazimierz Malczyk, set up Base Camp on August 4 below the 1962 Diamir Face route. A week later Camp III had been established at 6900 meters. Unfortunately, on August 13 the weather changed for the worse. They tried five times to reach Camp III again but could not. During 49 days on the mountain, only nine could be used for climbing.
