Nanga Parbat Climbed by Bulgarians. An expedition of five Bulgarians led by Minko Zankovski climbed the normal route on the Diamir Face of Nanga Parbat. Camps were established at 4800, 6000, 6700 and 7400 meters. After setting up Camp IV on August 16, Tsvetan Kotsev, Stanimir Georgiev and Toncho Tonchev were trapped by the weather for a day. Kotsev and Georgiev retreated because of signs of high-altitude sickness. On August 18, Tonchev set out alone and reached the summit at 6:30 P.M. Ms. Daniela Docheva was the fifth member of the party.
