Broad Peak, 1985. In A.A.J., 1986 on page 277, a portion of the account written by Sadao Tambe was omitted, telling of the second part of the expedition when six of their members climbed to the summit of Broad Peak. On August 12 one group bivouacked at 7850 meters and Jyoshi Wada, Munehiko Yamamoto and Tetsuya Toyama got to the summit while Masushi Takita had to quit shortly below the top. That same day, after bivouacking at 7580 meters, Shin Kashu, Tsuneo Shigehiro and Riichi Nishizutsumi reached the summit and Yoichi Yabukawa had to stop right below it. They had previously climbed Masherbrum.
