Dhaulagiri V Attempt. Four Spaniards hoped to climb Dhaulagiri V by the southeast ridge via White Peak, the route climbed by Japanese in 1979. Camp II was at 6400 meters on the summit of White Peak. Leader Angel Sierra and Xavier Robiro reached 7080 meters on October 6 and turned back because it was snowing. Bad weather continued. The ridge became dangerous without fixed rope, but their rope supply had been exhausted lower on the mountain. They abandoned the climb.
