Januhut, attempt. The Austrian team of Josef Jochler and Christian Zenz were the first party to attempt this 6,807m peak. Following the usual Gangotri-Tapovan approach, they established base camp on May 19, then reached the head of the long Gangotri Glacier in early June. However, they had plenty of porter problems due too-heavy snow cover on the glacier and, later, bad weather intervened, causing some cold injury to the fingers of one member. No serious attempt was made on the peak
