Nilgiri South, Attempt. It was reported that Tadej Golob led a five-member Slovenian expedition that attempted the first ascent of the southwest ridge on Nilgiri South (6839m). The team followed a line up the south face to connect with the crest of the ridge, reaching a high point of ca. 6600 meters on October 17 before strong winds and heavy snowfall forced an end to their efforts.
