Cholatse and Taweche Attempts. A five-man British expedition led by William Dark failed to climb the southeast ridge of Cholatse and the northeast ridge of Taweche in the pre-monsoon period. They established a high camp in the col between their two objectives. They could not reach either summit because of lack of manpower and skills, plus avalanching. They attempted Taweche first and got to 19,000 feet; they got to 20,400 feet on Cholatse.
