Thalay Sagar, Various Attempts. It was reported that Andrew Linblade (Australia) and Athol Wimp (New Zealand) attempted the north face of this peak in September, reaching 6350 meters before being turned back by continuing snow, extreme cold and incipient frostbite. A three-man Spanish team attempted the mountain by an unspecified route but illness on the part of the leader stopped their attempt. In May and June, a nine-member Korean team led by Hong Jae-Ahn attempted the northwest face but were turned around by avalanche danger at 6400 meters. (High Mountain Sports 174)
