Ganesh V. An expedition of 7 Slovenes led by Stane Belak established Base Camp and Camps I and II at 4150, 5150 and 6000 meters. They followed the 1989 Nepalese-Japanese route on Ganesh V as far as Camp II. On November 13, Belak and Tomaž Humar climbed the rest of the way to the summit (6986 meters, 22,919 feet) by a variant of the previous route. They reported the final 100 meters were difficult (IV+, 75°).
