Mazeno Peak Attempt on Northwest Face. José Luis Zuloaga, Kike de Pablo and I attempted a new route on Mazeno Peak (7120 meters, 23,360 feet) on the Diamir side of Nanga Parbat. We climbed alpine-style from July 29 to August 6. We failed to climb the final 200 meters because of very bad weather. The difficult rock-and-ice route rose from 4300 meters. The descent was made with thirty-six 60-meter rappels.
