Swargarohini Attempts. Briton Nicholas Banks and a companion failed on the northern approaches of difficult Swargarohini (6252 meters, 20,512 feet). They established three camps during continuous bad weather and made final attempts between May 25 and 28. A three-man Spanish expedition led by Xavier Carrento attempted the east ridge. They were beaten back by bad weather on August 20.
