Asia, Pakistan, Nanga Parbat Attempts on the Kinshofer Route, Diamir Flank

Nanga Parbat Attempts on the Kinshofer Route, Diamir Flank. Aside from the expeditions noted above, there were four expeditions that failed to reach the summit. Peter Long led a group of six Scots who did not get to the top. There were two unsuccessful South Korean expeditions, the leaders of which were Moon Ho-Sang and Kim Byung-Joon. The first group got to Camp IV at 7250 meters but had to quit because of bad weather. The other Korean party got to Camp IV on June 30 but three summit attempts were turned back by bad weather. The last expedition was a five-member Spanish expedition led by Manuel Amat, which had to give up at 7000 meters because of very bad weather in early September.
