By BILL STALL KATMANDU. Nepal Mount Everest has become d battleground pitting men against the harshest mountain environment on earth Seven expeditions have been booked tor Everest by Nepalese authorities through 1978 The world's highest at 29 028 teet has been reached cU least seven times since 1953 Even climbing the dinary route pioneered by Sir Edmund Hillary still is con- sidered an alluring moun- taineering goal But the supreme challenge ol big Himalayan expeditions now is the direct ascent of the Southwest Face of Kverest Since 1970. five major attempts have tailed in the lace ol bitter hurncane- lorce winds sweeping the up- per slopes of the Himalayan giant and the agony of difficult rock climbing in the thin air The latest rebuff came late last month when a well- organized Japanese expedi- tion was turned back at an elevation of teet from the summit of the world The same expedition earlier became the first to climb Kverest by the South Col route in the fall season. An Italian expedition succeeded by the regular route last spring HALTED BY ROCK But on the Southwest the climbers were stymied each time by a rock band 500 to 800 feet high barring the way to the final summit. After the failure of a British expedition a year leader Chris Bonington had been beaten by a com- bination of high winds and ex- treme cold. I had never before experienced such a combina- tion of savage wind and in- tense cold over a sustained Bonington is a veteran of some of the most difficult climbs in the Alps and Himalayas. Everest climbers spend weeks adjusting their bodies to the aftitude but still must use oxygen in limited quan- tities for climbing and sleep- ing as they approach the sum- mit. The only other route up Everest is the West Ridge line established by the American Mt. Everest expedition a decade ago. It has not been repeated. v The upcoming expeditions include two teams from one from New Austria and Canada and a women's expedition from Japan. None is from the United States which has field- ed an Everest expedition just in x queue is a tribute to he never-ending fascination of Bonington said.
