Putha Hiunchuli Attempt. German Heinrich Buhr and two Sherpas made an attempt on Putha Hiunchuli (7246 meters, 23,773 feet), hoping to climb the west ridge. They had serious problems on the approach. Their high point was 5300 meters, which they reached on October 20, after they had exhausted their supply of rope for fixing the route.
