Haizi, Sichuan. The name for this peak was given as Haizi by the Chinese and as Genie by the Japanese. The editor is not sure of its exact location. The leader of a Japanese expedition was Kazuo Tobita. They established Base Camp at 4350 meters on May 30 and attacked the south ridge. Camps I and II were placed at 5150 and 5750 on May 31 and June 3 before bad weather halted operations. On June 11, Tobita, Tetsuro Ito and Osamu Takita went to the summit (6240 meters, 20,473 feet), followed the next day by Kasuhiko Amagi, Ms. Reiko Terasawa, Kuniharu Ohno and Ms. Kyoko Endo.
