Asia, India—Garhwal, Chaukhamba II Attempt

Chaukhamba II Attempt. Koreans Kim Woong-Sik and three others attempted virgin Chaukhamba II (7068 meters, 23,190 feet), approaching for the first time from the Gangotri Glacier. They established Camps I, II and III at 4700, 5000 and 6200 meters between September 19 and October 1. However, falling stones and a shortage of equipment stopped them on this long approach.
