Istor-o-Nal Northeast Attempt. Our six-man Nagoya Keiryo Club Expedition failed to climb Istor-o-Nal Northeast. We established Base Camp on June 18 at 13,950 feet on the South Atrak Glacier. Camps I and II at 15,750 and 17,400 feet were placed on the glacier. Camp III (19,350 feet) and Camp IV (21,000 feet) were established on July 27 and July 8. Ice formations and difficult rock obliged us to retire from a high point of 21,325 feet on July 18.
