Trisul Attempts and Tragedy. An 8-member Polish expedition led by Michal Kochanczak attempted to climb Trisul (7120 meters, 23,360 meters) from the west in August and September. In bad weather they got to 6700 meters. Mrs. Anna Bruzdowicz Dudek died from exhaustion on September 5 at Camp I (6000 meters). Germans led by Josef Gloggner attempted the Yugoslav route on the west face to the south ridge. They reached 6400 meters on October 19 but were turned back by the cold.
