Api. An eight-man expedition from Matsumoto Alpine Club was led by Katsuyuki Fukuzawa. After having delays on their approach due to porters being injured in a heavy snowstorm at Luwakhola from March 2 to 4, they got to Base Camp on March 24. Their attempt on the south west ridge was abandoned at 19,800 feet on April 13 as the route beyond Camp II was difficult and dangerous.
