Ganesh III Attempt. Three Britons and an American hoped to climb Ganesh III or Salasungo (7110 meters, 23,326 feet) via the northeast face and the northeast buttress. They established Base Camp and Camps I and II at 4575, 5185 and 5875 meters on March 23, 28 and April 4. On April 8, leader Julian Mathias and Daniel Donovan reached 6100 meters on the northeast face but gave up because of heavy snowfalls and avalanche danger.
