Dhampus Attempt. Hubert Blondeau, Guy Petermann, Alain Trouillet, Alain and Régine Roche, Claire and Jacques Libanet and I established Base Camp at 5400 meters on Dhampus in October. We made a try to 5650 meters, but very heavy snowfall and cerebral edema contracted by two of our members forced us to make a rapid descent. We gave up the attempt.
