Nanga Parbat, Diamir Face. We established Base Camp at 4200 meters at the foot of the Diamir Face on July 6. We climbed the Kinshofer or Schell route. We placed Camps I and II at 5000 and 6200 meters. Because of bad weather we were unable to set up Camps III and IV at 6800 and 7200 meters until the first week of August. On August 9, Sergeants Pedro Expósito and Domingo Hernández and civilians Pedro Martínez and Fernando Alvarez reached the summit. The other members of the expedition were Captains José María Jayme, Alfonso Juez, Francisco Gan and Dr. César Alforo, Sergeants Pedro Aceradillo and Juan Orta and civilians Carlos Soria and Pedro Nicolás.
