Bhagirathi III Attempt. Seven Czechs led by Dr. Miroslav Coubal attempted a new route on the rocky west wall of Bhagirathi III (6454 meters, 21,175 feet) but due to inclement weather they failed, reaching 5800 meters on September 5. The team included the accomplished rock climbers, the brothers Miroslav and Michal Coubal.
