Asia, India—Sikkim, Siniolchu Attempt

Siniolchu Attempt. Our expedition was composed of Sen Hiraizumi, Atsushi Koyama, Ryosuke Wakusawa and I as leader. On May 8, we reached only 4800 meters and had to turn back because of bad weather and a tight schedule. We established Base Camp at Yabuk at 3978 meters on May 3, Advance Base at 4570 meters on May 5 and after crossing the Zemu Glacier, Camp I at 4600 meters on the Siniolchu Glacier on May 7. This was really a reconnaissance for 1995.
