Everest, West Ridge and South Col Attempt. An international expedition led by Pole Aleksander Lwow was composed of two Poles, a German, an Australian and three Americans. They first attempted the west ridge, where on October 2 they got to 7600 meters. They then shifted their efforts to the South Col route, where they reached their high point of 6700 meters on October 15.
