Yogishwar Attempt and Ascent of Saife. A 5-man Spanish team led by Fernando Navarro approached from the Shyamvarna Glacier and established camp on the south ridge of Yogishwar (6678 meters, 21,910 feet). However, in late September they encountered huge crevasses and very loose rock on the ridge, which forced them to give up the climb. They climbed nearby Saife (6161 meters, 20,213 feet) from the Swetvarna Glacier on September 19.
