Bojohaghur II (Ultar) Attempt, 1992. A Japanese three-man expedition, led by Toshio Narita, attempted to climb Bojohaghur II, which is also known as Ultar, (7388 meters, 24,240 feet) from Ahmad Abad Glacier. After placing Base Camp at 4000 meters on July 30, they attacked the southeast buttress. They worked their way up to 5400 meters, but the weather continued so bad that they felt the route was unclimbable under the conditions that prevailed and gave up in late August, 1992.
