Thalay Sagar Attempt. Our expedition was made up of Jordi Camprubi, Fredi Puig, Joan Vila, Toti Llobera and me as leader. We attempted to make the fourth ascent of the northeast ridge, first climbed by Norwegians and Poles in 1983. We placed Base Camp, Advance Base, Camps I, II and Bivouac I at 4500 on the lake Kedar Tal, 4700, 5400, 6000 and 6300 meters on August 6, 7, 9, 17 and 19. Because of the indisposition of two climbers and a storm at the high bivouac, we were unable to continue.
