Jumo Ganker, Attempt. It was reported that Huw Davies and John Town (U.K.) attempted Jomo Ganker (7048m) in the Western Nyanchen Tangla Range in Central Tibet in late July and August. They were hoping to make the first western ascent of the mountain by following the line of the other two ascents up the south face. They reached 5900 meters; the weather was unsettled throughout their climb. (High Mountain Sports 186)
